What perfect timing! Yesterday, UNA posted an article outlining the recent layoffs of 20+ (maybe more...I can't recall exactly) nurses at various Primary Care Network Centres in Calgary.
According to the article, the affected nurses had their positions eliminated through AHS as a cost savings measure. These nurses may apply for positions within the system or apply for their old positions which are now non-union at these PCN's.
Very classy, especially considering that these layoffs coincide with nurses week.
The bad news keeps on coming. I would put nothing past them. Hopefully during the next election in AB Redford and her posse will be voted out. Such a disaster!
