Rally on March 20 against imposed pension cuts

United Nurses of Alberta members are encouraged to join their co-workers from other unions at information walks on March 20. The lunchtime rallies are being organized by union locals and coordinated by the Labour Coalition on Pensions at 28 sites across Alberta, including at 16 UNA worksites (see list below).

The Redford Government is proposing drastic changes to the Local Authorities Pension Plan that will impact the retirement security of UNA members. Come out on March 20 to show your support for retirement security and send a message to the government that they should “keep the pension promise.”

UNA locals at worksites not included on the list of 28 sites are encouraged to organize their own information walks in their communities. UNA locals and members can access campaign materials for the info walks at TruthAboutAlbertaPensions.ca.
