Labour Day – the last long weekend of summer and the last break before autumn – recognizes the contribution made by all working people.
Among the workers striving to improve the lives of Albertans are our province’s nurses – women and men who have been on the front lines of the public health care system, dealing with understaffing, underfunding and the lingering impact of the COVID-19 pandemic as they do their utmost to bring the best care to everyone in need.
For most Canadians, the Labour Day weekend is all about taking it easy.
But for Registered Nurses, Registered Psychiatric Nurses and the other health care professionals represented by UNA, it’s one of the busiest times of the year.
This Labour Day and every day, Alberta’s nurses are on your side and at your side.
We work constantly to make our workplaces safer for patients, residents and clients.
We advocate for public health and proper funding.
We struggle for women’s rights and working rights by ensuring all working people are treated the same way where they work.
And if there is an emergency, the mission of Alberta’s nurses is to be there for you.
Let’s make this last summer weekend of 2022 a safe and happy one for all.
