Alberta Union of Public Employees

The Alberta Union of Public Employees (AUPE) issued a press release, "Clamping down on union dues while accepting donations from the rich," on July 7, 2020. It says in part:

"Alberta Union of Provincial Employees (AUPE) members are dropping the mask on Bill 32, which AUPE Secretary-Treasurer Jason Heistad says is just another UCP attack on working people's ability to build people power and fight for all Albertans disguised as 'employee choice.'"[...]

"Fighting for equality in the workplace; for better occupational health and safety (OHS) standards that keep us and our families safe; for stronger social services; for adequate, affordable housing; for equal and fair access to free health care: all of this is a social issue, and it's at the heart of our everyday mobilizing and collective bargaining."[...]

"The UCP want us to think this bill is about individual choice. It's really about dismantling our collective power, which is our political power. And that's clearly what this government fears most."
