Hospital Appreciation Rallies

May 6, 2020 Joyce Lusunike

Over the past few days, SEIU Healthcare has organized numerous appreciation car rallies in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, to honour frontline workers and remember our sisters Sharon Roberts, Arlene Reid, and Christine Mandegarian.

We were able to visit several long-term care units and this week we will continue showing our support by visiting our hospital members on Friday, May 8, 2020. There will be two routes that lead all of us to Queen’s Park. We are overwhelmed with the amount of support our membership has displayed and we hope are you able to join us.

Again, we do not encourage anyone to exit their vehicle, as we are cautiously practicing physical distancing. We hope you can join us to show our membership, the public, the government, and your employers that we will continue to stand in solidarity. You are our heroes, thank you for protecting us on the frontlines.
