    Workers at two Connecticut health care facilities run by the New Jersey firm that manages the West River Health Care nursing home in Milford -- where unionized employees are locked out in a contract dispute -- gathered to protest in picket lines Friday.

    The picketing, organized by New England Health Care Employees Union District 1199, was held to draw attention to the practices HealthBridge Management engages in during "a year of contentious contract negotiations," the union said, with some 640 Connecticut union members who staff six of its health care centers.

    West River locked out employees in December after the workers declined to accept a final contract offer from management in October. Lockouts were also threatened at the other facilities, including the Danbury Health Care Center, Long Ridge of Stamford and Westport Health Care Center.
