Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

SSEU Local 371 proposes the naming of a city-run shelter facility for Ms. Shirley Gray, former Chief of Staff at Social Services Employees Union Local 371, on behalf of Mr. Anthony Wells, President.

Ms. Gray, who passed away last year, was a treasure to many current and former Department of Homeless Services and Human Resources Administration employees. She hired many of us, giving us an opportunity to become civil servants and changing our lives forever. She was integral to bringing about many improvements in the system.

In addition, Ms. Gray nurtured our careers and taught us about activism. She taught us to stand tall in the face of adversity. Ms. Gray has worked for both the union and management. She garnered a reputation for professionalism, activism and effecting positive change. This would be a fitting testament to an amazing woman.

By clicking the button below, I agree to add my name to this petition to name a city-run shelter facility for the late Ms. Shirley Gray, former Chief of Staff at SSEU Local 371.
