Letter: ​UNC Housekeeping appreciates thanks


Over the past few years, UNC housekeepers have endured budget cuts, staff reductions and a whole host of other challenges.

These issues made it difficult for them to perform their duties.

I would like to say, as a member of the Employee Forum and a member of the UNC Housekeeping staff, “Thank You!” to the following departments: School of Nursing, the Sonja Haynes Stone Center and the Old Dental School.

These departments have shown some much-appreciated respect and thanks for the services the third-shift housekeeping department has delivered.

The third-shift housekeepers are usually never seen by the departments they serve.

However, despite our general invisibility, every year these departments graciously find it in their hearts to do something for Christmas for this group of lowest-paid workers.

I would like to say thanks again to all who have contributed to their custodial staff. The staff truly appreciates these gestures, which help lift morale.

Special thanks go to Director Gloria Thomas of the Carolina Women’s Center, Facilities Maintenance Supervisor Sam Deal of the School of Nursing and Research Operations Manager Al Elsenrath in the School of Dentistry.
