BATTLE CREEK, MI  (WTVB) -  A coalition of trade unions and social justice groups say that Borgess Hospital should and could still hire more local union workers to build their new ambulatory care center on Capital S.W. in Battle Creek. George Brown with the group “Creating Changes” says too many outside contractors have been brought in.

Borgess Property Manager Eric Buzzell says they are on a budget like everyone else these days, a budget that just keeps getting tighter, they took the lowest but best bidders, keeping safety and quality in mind.

They both say it’s a balancing act, but they just disagree where the balance point is, and what should get weighted.
