"The current pandemic might have been unpredictable. But strong public health systems rooted in a global economic order which prioritises solidarity and the wellbeing of people and the planet over the profits of a few would have made it much more manageable.

It is now clear that we cannot rely on the market to protect our health." — Baba Aye, PSI Health & Social Services Officer
The National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) has provided a donation of $25,000 to international efforts to respond to the Ebola epidemic in Western Africa.

“This is an incredible story that a small group of 45 workers in St. John’s would receive such international attention and solidarity from workers as far away as Argentina, Australia, Belgium, the United States, and across Canada. We are very grateful for the support that helped our workers through this difficult time." — Carol Furlong, NAPE President.
