Health unions keep up call for 'collective' meeting with health minister

Nov 28, 2022

Health unions keep up call for 'collective' meeting with health minister Back to video Shortly after Premier Danielle Smith’s new cabinet was sworn in last month, the United Nurses of Alberta (UNA), Health Sciences Association of Alberta (HSAA), Alberta Union of Provincial Employees (AUPE) and Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) came together to “insist” on meeting with the health minister to talk about improving the health-care system.

Please try again Article content When the government announced just a few weeks later that the Alberta Health Services board would be dismantled and replaced with a single official administrator, Smith said she and Health Minister Jason Copping had just spoken with AUPE, HSAA and UNA leaders. Recommended from Editorial Article content “We’re doing all of this to be able to support them, create a better working environment to make sure that they feel valued,” she said. “They know that we know what the solutions are. They want us to work on them,” she said, adding the province intends to take a consultative approach. UNA president Heather Smith confirmed she spoke with the premier and health minister ahead of the AHS administrator announcement, but said Saturday it wasn’t the type of meeting unions have requested. She still thinks a broader discussion is warranted because “the deficits here in the province are clearly across the entire continuum of workers.” The November meeting provided advance notice about the decision to change the AHS leadership structure, a move that the UNA leader said comes with its own challenges.

New administrator Dr. John Cowell has been told to focus on decreasing wait times in emergency rooms and for surgeries, improving EMS response times and consulting with front-line workers on reforms. The HSAA’s Parker said his message to the premier was the need for direct support for health workers. “The premier says we have entered the ‘action phase’ of reforming health care,” he said. “That means overcoming staffing shortages and improving working conditions so we can care for Albertans.”
