Nurses plan information walks and rallies across Alberta for Feb. 13

UNA Locals across Alberta are planning to hold events on Thursday, Feb. 13, 2020 to raise concerns about the Alberta government’s decision to to lay off hundreds of Nurses across Alberta and the impact it will have on safe patient care. Eliminating nursing jobs contradicts all evidence of the best way to run a safe and effective health care system.
