AUPE members to join UNA members at rallies across Alberta Thursday

EDMONTON – Members of the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees (AUPE) will join their fellow health care workers at province-wide rallies organized by the United Nurses of Alberta (UNA) on Feb. 13.

“This is a show of solidarity and strength from health care workers across the province,” said AUPE President Guy Smith.

“The government is trying to divide Albertans, but we won’t let them. We are united in our struggle and AUPE members are proud to resist the government’s cuts and privatization schemes together with our fellow workers in UNA.”

Alberta Nurses are standing up against health care cuts and defending safe patient care. UNA joined HSAAlberta and AUPE and others in force outside Health Minister Tyler Shandro’s office Jan. 30 to send a loud message to the health minister. (Twitter)
