A union that represents some of the workers at Ruby Memorial Hospital is looking into some curious claims against a supervisor there, including one she spanked one of her coworkers with a shoe.

Officials with LIUNA Local 814 claim the supervisor has had a number of complaints filed against her.

One complaint filed her indicates she reached into the pockets of a couple coworkers.

Union administrators claim hospital officials haven't done enough to deal with the situation.

Charlotte Bennett, WVU Healthcare Vice President of Human Resources released the following statement:

"At WVU Healthcare, we take workplace conduct matters very seriously, and we remain committed to maintaining a safe and professional workplace environment for all of our employees.

When a complaint is made, the  WVU Healthcare Human Resources office conducts a thorough investigation. As per our policy, we call together a Harassment Committee composed of people outside the department where the allegation was made. Their job is to review the complaint, gather evidence, investigate the claim and submit their findings to my office. Upon receipt of those findings, our office takes appropriate action if the complaint is found to be justified.

In order to protect both those who make complaints and those who are accused of wrongdoing, these internal investigations are conducted in confidentiality.

The press release issued by the union contains several inaccuracies. Through our investigation, we found no evidence to substantiate the claims made.

We regret that the Union is turning to the media rather than our contractually agreed-upon grievance process for resolving workplace disputes."
