I have been and will continue to be committed to keeping my coworkers informed and engaged. I have been consistent in my actions and in my words – that will not change. I understand that my responsibility as your Union Executive Committee representative is to represent everyone’s interest and I pledge to do just that. Healthcare Justice matters on many fronts. An inadequate healthcare system hurts everyone – the employer, the employee, the patient, and the community. It impacts EVERYONE – the way we live and how we feel no matter who we are. It matters to me not only as an employee but also as a consumer of healthcare. I have personally and professionally witnessed how the lack of access to quality affordable care affects the entire system in terms of quality of life, individual financial costs, healthcare corporate financial costs, quality of service and employee wages.
