Marie Ritacco Brags That Striking St Vincent’s Nurses Are Blocking Trucks From Getting To Hospital, Turning Away Supplies, Harassing Scabs


Last night on the live show we showed the world video of a Zoom meeting in which MNA Vice President Marie Ritacco urges striking St. Vincent’s nurses to block the entrances in order to prevent the hospital from functioning in its normal capacity. (Click here to subscribe to our YouTube channel and always get content like this first every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 9 PM.)

She specifically tells nurses to “be at the entrance and exits,” brags that “we’re turning away delivery trucks every day,” and makes it clear that she’s happy to see the hospital unable to function properly because of these tactics:

“This is impeding the ability of the employer to do business as usual, we’re making it difficult. We have to do that.”

She justified the organized bullying and doxxing campaigns of the nurses who have chosen to cross the picket line.

“No one ever died from being called a scab. When I see scabs I call them out, they’re scabs. We need to push a little bit.”

No one has ever died from being called a cunt either. I wonder if Marie would like it if I followed her around calling her that.

She tells striking nurses to aimlessly walk back in forth in front of the entrances and exits, which they have been doing.

“We need a constant flow of people at the entrances.”

She makes it clear that simply showing up with a sign to strike isn’t enough.

“Standing on the side with the picket signs is not really the purpose of an active striking picket line.”

Who does Marie Ritacco think she is exactly? Jimmy Hoffa? You are not the Teamsters Union. You’re a bunch of women who were making Tik Tok videos 9 months ago. You want people to feel bad for you when you’re bragging bout turning away trucks with supplies necessary for quality healthcare? What if your sick mother was in there and needed food or medication that couldn’t get there because of this stunt?

There’s a lot of great nurses out there, and I’m naturally sympathetic towards them in any fight they have with management. But it’s clear that Marie Ritacco doesn’t understand that Zoom meetings are never private, doesn’t understand that public approval is one of the most important things you need when you strike, and the MNA needs better leadership. This is not how you strike.

    I still do not get it. Simp here had his MTA to backed him up while he was a teacher, would probably let the MTA ass rape him id he could get his teacher job back… but here he is whiteknighting for.

      March 17, 2021 at 5:37 pm

      It’s not even that — there are professional ethics that nurses are bound to as a condition of being a nurse and if those trucks are carrying either medical supplies or food for patients, every one of them ought to have her nursing license yanked.

        ANY, Any action that interferes with patient safety, health or well being is a potential firing offense. Any such action taken with the intent of interfering with patient care may be a criminal offense.

  • Done with this shit

    Their action went from being justified to being asinine. Why would you think compromising patient care is gonna work for you? Not doing much long term thinking on that picket line

    I went to St. Vs yesterday for a 5PM appointment. When I tried to pull in, they were blocking the entrance on purpose. The union cops didn’t do anything for at least 30 seconds. Cars were piling up behind me on the main road. Then when I left, again they blocked the exit. I had a green light to go but they still blocked the road. And once again the union cops did nothing for over a minute.

    If you want to strike, fine. I have no problem with it. But when you block roads so people can’t get by, that’s when people start hating you (the nurses & cops). Wait until you have someone try to pull in and and blow their air horn. The cops will arrest you on the spot for noise pollution but won’t do jack when nurses block the entrance and cause an accident on the main road.

    I think because people falsely held nurses up as hero’s, it went to their head. That’s why they feel they can act so entitled.

    If your average citizen decided to organize a group of people to block delivery drivers they would immediately be arrested. What makes this cunt so special?

  • Simp got a new harrasment order, haha!
    March 17, 2021 at 10:40 am

    Really hope Mr. Mc Adams printed the stupid article Aidan wrote directly insulting the judges in Springfield.
    I am sure they will appreciate Simp even more for that and all the comments he made on LGTB community, the young ladies.
    Hipe Simp gets stopped on his way there and the cop recognizes Simp has disrespectful to cops and gives him a ticket. Hope he gets stop on his way back and get s another ticket.
    But what I really hope is that one of the many Western MA ratchets he has written about recognizes him and cleans his clock (I am sure they would not mind picking up that charge).
    In conclusion, Simps are going to be Simps.

    P.s. I hope that mike Giannnetti gets a decent lawyer and sues you for using his image on a shirt to enrich yourself. Just the cost of fighting that will be 10x what you make on it, you Simp.

    If you look closely at the pictures there are only a few picketers. Look at the Police presence (yellow jackets) in each picture.

    The Police will arrest anyone blocking the entrance.

    What I suspect is that some of the delivery vehicles are operated by other union workers (teamsters etc.) and they turn away because they refuse to cross a picket line.

    This crazy-eyed cunt needs prison time. Do they even have the right/authority to turn away trucks? If I were a supply driver, I would just keep driving. Can’t the hospital administration get the truck and escort? Something doesn’t sound right about this.

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis
    March 17, 2021 at 9:25 am

    So they are striking because they are worried that the patients are not getting proper care? And yet? They are making sure they can’t get the proper care , by holding up deliveries etc. Kind of defeating the purpose of the strike.

    Unions used to have a place in our society. Before social media and the like, employers could get away with slave labor wages and benefits, and poor/unsafe conditions.

    If an employers is that bad nowadays, they can get cancelled in a minute, it is much easier for you to walk and get a new job.

    Ghestapo tactics like this are going to hurt the employer, but they are going to harm these union people even moreso. Again, in the world of social media, prospective employers are going to avoid hiring these people and those unintended consequences are going to hurt all of them in the long run. I hope they all get what they deserve…. unemployment checks in 2 years.

      They were justified 100 years ago, when people were working in sweatshops without fire escapes and children were crawling around in coal mines for 10 cents a day. State and Federal Laws now prevents all of that, so what is really the point of them in 2021?

      By the way, what’s next on the agenda from this dingbat, barging into the hospital rooms and yanking the IV’s out of the patients’ arms?

      March 17, 2021 at 12:50 pm

      Wow…..proper English, spelling and grammar is so difficult isn’t it? Before you attack TB take a solid look at those pics. If that was your daughter, sister, niece, ECT you are going to tell me you’d be cool with that? If you say yes you’re either a liar or just as fucked as that dude is. This has ZERO to do with being a member of the LGBT community and everything to do with supplying alcohol to minors, posing with them half naked and in a few cases, sexual fucking assault!!!!

      Instead of attacking Aidan how about attacking the ACTUAL predator??? If that was one of my nieces he’d find out what it is like to have his ass beat by a woman. Guess what? That would be a charge I wouldn’t mind getting you simpleton piece of dumbass trash!

    I saw on the new they were calling the delivery drivers joggers and spics. They’re doing a great job standing up for proper patient care. I hope they’re ready for the backlash and harassment that’s coming to them. Nothing worse than someone who can dish it out but can’t take it. I hope someone throws a brick through this cunts window.

    How funny would it be if one of these fat nurses took a heart attack while picketing.

    I hope Maria causes enough disruption that someone dies and that cunt is charged he’d with 3rd degree murder. Get rid of that skank once and for all. Why hasn’t she been arrested? Picketing is one thing but it can’t be legal to block deliveries and trucks. Slap the cuffs on this cunt and make an example out of her. I guarantee the rest of her lesbian army retreats.
