ROCHESTER – In response to reports that, while visiting Mayo Clinic, Vice President Mike Pence did not follow the mask policy, SEIU Healthcare Minnesota President Jamie Gulley issued the following statement.
“Every day our members go to work and follow proper safety protocols to protect their patients, their co-workers, and their families. When Vice President Pence ignores the safety policy and refuses to wear a mask, he insults the hard work and sacrifice of all health care workers. Worse, he puts them, their patients, and their families at risk.
“As the union that represents thousands of workers at Mayo, we are deeply disappointed that Mayo failed to enforce their own policy.”
