Buying Influence

Published on February 8th, 2020

The Daily News recently reported that disgraced nursing home owner and operator Avery Eisenreich and his family are trying to buy themselves back into the industry.  Alaris Health founder Avery Eisenreich and four members of his family each gave $2,000 to Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams’ likely 2021 campaign for mayor.  As you may recall, Eisenreich was violating federal labor law.

The contributions followed a National Labor Relations Board determination in December 2018 that four Alaris nursing facilities violated laws by refusing to reinstate 35 strikers after their unconditional offer to return to work, agreeing with a judge’s 2016 ruling that the chain engaged in unlawful behavior.

The Alaris workers went on a three-day strike in September 2014 after management at the homes “committed a number of unfair labor practices (ULPs) against them, including threatening and interrogating employees and obstructing their legally protected right to bargain over their working conditions,” according to the charges against the company.

The five Eisenreichs initially gave $5,100 each, but Adams refunded $15,500 in order to abide by a lower contribution limit required to get a higher rate of taxpayer-backed campaign matching funds. Adams and other candidates for mayor must cap contributions from any one donor at $2,000 in order to collect $8 in public campaign funds for every $1 raised — up to $250 for donations from city residents.
