Rehire our Coworkers
Dear Chase Leadership,
A few weeks ago, four of our coworkers in the Behavioral Health Department were unfairly terminated. Our entire department is united in the belief that the action taken by management towards Jenine Coleman, Kierra Webb, LaBryce Talley, and Tyesha Brown were outrageous, unjust, and disproportionate to any mistakes that our colleagues may have made.
We have worked side by side with these four women, and we are dismayed by these actions as they remind some of us of how management used to act prior to Patrick’s arrival at Chase Brexton. These actions have damaged our sense of safety and trust in Chase Brexton's leadership: they seem counter to Chase Brexton's mission to honor the diversity of perspectives, and cloud Chase Brexton's vision of acting with integrity, being passionate about always improving, and fostering a culture of innovation.
As we work to process the pain and mistrust this action has created, we are reminded of the signs throughout the center that we are all in the fight against racism in public health together. This action seems hypocritical to that message, and only reinforces that management’s actions speak louder than words.
We are demanding that our four colleagues are rehired immediately.
