7000 143 St
Edmonton, AB T6H 4P3
WHO WANTS TO GO ON A BUS TRIP TO CALGARY?1!?
This is an urgent time for the public sector in Alberta and health care workers are bearing the brunt of it. There have been a series of demonstrations across the province since the budget came out in October and we must keep up the momentum. It is time for the government to listen to the concerns of EMS. With the support of your local unit funds, we are renting a bus that will take to the Minister of Health Tyler Shandro's constituency office for a demonstration rally. We have also reached out to Calgary-based HSAA members and other public sector workers worried about the future of Health care in Alberta to support the rally.
For too long, EMS has been on the sidelines, often the last priority in funding and in recognition. It is time for us to stand up and be counted and make our voices heard. We have the support of the public we need to make it clear what these cuts and privatization will do to EMS in Alberta.
This rally will also serve another purpose - a morale boost! This will be a chance to meet and spend time with your colleagues and celebrate the solidarity that we have.
Cost: $10/per person covers supper food and incidentals.
What to Bring: Warm clothes, signs, noise makers, camping chair if you need one.
Where to meet: Parking Lot at Fort Edmonton Park
