Extendicare wants to cut Alberta health care workers wages by 4%
Extendicare employees working in Albertan aren’t pleased with the latest announcement that 4 per cent of employee wages will be cut by Canada’s largest private home care provider. The cuts come shortly after Alberta Health Services offered a similar package to AUPE members working in AHS General Support Services.
Vice-President with the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees, Bobby-Joe Borodey, says the hardest part of the announcement is the timing as Alberta inches its way out of the pandemic.
AUPE says they are going to continue to fight the recent announcement to keep the jobs in place.
