HSABC/NUPGE encouraged the government to be bold in its action, and make the investment needed to maintain and grow a robust and sustainable public health care system.
The LCBO is a massive organization that provides critical investment in our public services. It should be run by people who know the retail business and who know Ontario’s alcohol system, not by people who only know Ford’s cellphone number.
"The employer seems to have no problem paying premium rates — plus travel and accommodation — to bring in staff from outside of Nova Scotia, but they nickel and dime their own hard-working employees." — Jason MacLean, NSGEU President
"HSABC/NUPGE will be asking members to start tracking their workload concerns as part of a coordinated effort to identify how shortages are impacting patient care and where action needs to be taken." — Val Avery, HSABC President
The current practice of forcing sheriffs to work overtime is not working and is unsustainable. The shortage is compromising courthouse security, delaying important proceedings, and is threatening the integrity of our justice system.
