The other organizations were the Alberta Union of Public Employees (AUPE), the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), United Nurses of Alberta (UNA), and Friends of Medicare (FOM).

Sandra Azocar, Vice President of theAUPE, recalled that one of the biggest problems is the lack of staff in health facilities: We know where the gaps are, we have solutions, and we want to have a comprehensive plan to fix the healthcare system.

The group confirmed that unions have still not received any word from the Ministry of Health. If he ever fails to contact them, they promise their voices will be heard otherwise.

Danielle Smith triggers reactions

Union representatives also reacted together to Danielle Smith’s new cabinet. Most find it absurd that there is no Department of Labor to mediate between workers’ voices.

The Premier explained that there are now two Departments of Labor: Brian Jean’s Labour, Economy and Northern Development and Kaycee Madu’s Skilled Trades and Occupations.

A number of representatives also took the floor to denounce one of the solutions proposed by Mrs Smith.

The latter had proposed reorganizing Alberta Health Services (AHS), specifically through redundancy Board by the end of the year, which they believe is the cause of the labor shortage.

Some representatives said soAHS continues to operate and thereby avoids addressing the problem of understaffing and will only create more distortions in an already fragile system .

Confronted with his statements about theAHSOn Monday, Danielle Smith replied that it is her interested in talking to people here to solve problems here.

Officials are not optimistic about the future of the health care system observing the first days of the new government.

I don’t think they take this problem seriously said Mike Parker. I have the impression that they take the problem lightly.
