WHO WE ARE

This fundraising campaign is being coordinated through the Legal Department at LiUNA Local 3000, the union which represents Rose's fellow members at Summerwood Village. 

LiUNA Local 3000 is a Canadian union that represents nearly 9,000 workers, primarily frontline health care workers. Its members work in retirement homes, long term care facilities, hospitals, crisis shelters, and for home care agencies in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Ontario.

WHAT HAPPENED

Rose Vandelannoite was a Healthcare Aide at the Summerwood Village retirement home in Sherwood Park - a home managed by Nutra 2000. Rose became infected with COVID-19 at work in early December 2020 (we are still awaiting confirmation of specific details). After fighting the virus for 5 weeks, she succumbed to her illness at the University of Alberta Hospital.

Rose was a committed healthcare worker, devoted to the residents she cared for. She was also a tireless advocate for her coworkers and was the chief union steward for LiUNA Local 3000 at Summerwood Village. She leaves behind two adult children and many, many friends.


WHY HELP IS NEEDED

Our Union sister's family needs our help to cover the funeral expenses. We understand that this situation is made all the more stressful for her family by virtue of how the pandemic has prevented people from congregating to bid farewell to those who have passed away.

As Rose's Union, all of us here at LIUNA Local 3000 stand in uncompromising solidarity with her family. We have activated all possible routes of assistance, and everyone from her rep, to the Local's executive and Legal Department are taking up the call for assistance.
