"Workers recognize NAPE/NUPGE as a union that fights for better pay and benefits, for improved health and safety standards, and for better overall working conditions." — Jerry Earle, NAPE President
“We have real concerns about the impact that the workloads, stress, and strain of their jobs is having on our members.” — Jerry Earle, NAPE President

“We have heard from health care members in multiple locations across the province about the degradation of services in their workplaces and the impact that’s having on service delivery and patient care.” — Jerry Earle, NAPE President
“Improved mental health support systems and pathways, a new correctional facility to replace the HMP, additional health professional staff, improved training, and increased staff allocations and presence are all things that need to be implemented to improve the outcomes of our correctional facilities.” — Jerry Earle, NAPE President
On behalf of all NAPE members, the union is incredibly proud to donate $10,000 to the association to help them get back to supporting our province’s most vulnerable.
“We were clear from the start that any presumptive workplace mental health legislation would need to cover all workers and not just first responders — mental health doesn’t know or care what job you do. We were very happy to see every worker included in this important legislation." — Jerry Earle, NAPE President
“We wanted to launch this campaign to highlight the positive impact that home care and youth care workers have on thousands of people across the province every single day.” — Jerry Earle, NAPE President
