Last week, there was a tragic mass-shooting at the Allina Crossroads Clinic in Buffalo, Minnesota. The clinic is located about a mile from the hospital which is represented by our Union. Our hearts go out to the workers and families who were impacted by the senseless violence. Hundreds of SEIU members live and work in the Buffalo community and we have heard from many who have been personally and emotionally impacted by what happened.
I want to thank and appreciate all the first responders as well as the care teams at North Memorial and HCMC who cared for the victims. Please take a moment of silence today to remember and honor Lindsay Overbay, the healthcare worker who died from the shooting.
If you or anyone you know needs help or someone to talk to, please reach out for EAP services through your Human Resources department or reach out to the SEIU Member Action Center for referrals.
