HSAA supports AUPE workers standing up against Kenney’s health-care cuts

Edmonton — “HSAA supports AUPE workers who are standing up against Kenney’s health-care cuts that were heartlessly announced in the midst of this pandemic,” says Mike Parker, President of the Health Sciences Association of Alberta representing 27,000 health-care professionals across the province.

“Health-care workers have been working tirelessly to keep Albertans safe and they have been rewarded with threats to their jobs by a government that is hell-bent on ripping apart our public health-care system. The blame for any disruption to patient care that may occur today needs to land squarely at the feet of Jason Kenney and the UCP,” Parker added.

HSAA members will respect picket lines. It is the employer’s responsibility to safely get them into their workplaces. HSAA members will not do the work of other union members.

HSAA is 27,000 health-care professionals dedicated to protecting the public health system and the vulnerable Albertans who rely on it.
