A colleague of Beverley Jones requested that she be acknowledged during Black History Month because “Beverley is purple strong.” Beverley is the chief steward and a cook with Compass at Runnymede Healthcare Centre in Toronto.
Donna Thomas’ co-worker selected her to be acknowledged during Black History Month because she has actively engaged many of her fellow members to become more involved with their union. Donna has been an SEIU Healthcare for more than 20 years, is a steward, and she is passionate about the labour movement.
SEIU Healthcare is excited to celebrate Healthcare Foodservice Workers Week. This is a great opportunity to acknowledge the hard work of the foodservice associates, the dishwashers, the servers, the chefs, the registered dietitians, and the other professionals in the field. These caring individuals help ensure that patients, families, and staff in healthcare facilities are kept fit and well-nourished.
