A well earned retirement

I recently attended a retirement party for one of our caregivers who worked in the Sparrow Lab and has retired after 40 years of service at Sparrow Hospital. I met Honey Grewal back in 1989 when I was 18 years old. Honey worked in the lab I was hired into. We quickly became good friends and have remained friends over the 29 years I have been at Sparrow.
I am compelled to write this article about Honey because she was a remarkable woman a good friend with a true love of her job. She was very unique in that, in her 40 years of employment she has never called in to work a single time. On top of that, she has never been late to work a single time. That is simply remarkable. Honey was truly dedicated, not to mention blessed, in that she was able to accomplish this amazing feat. She will be missed.
On another note, Local 4911 is a year out from negotiations. Our bargaining team recently met with John Beck, a professor of Labor Relations at Michigan State University for training in collaborative style bargaining. We hope to have more training and team building opportunities over the next year leading into negotiations.
