Solidarity with Striking University of Lethbridge Faculty
Friends of Medicare stands in solidarity with University of Lethbridge Faculty Association members who are now on strike
Alberta’s universities, colleges, and post-secondary institutions have been under attack and experiencing deep cuts since the UCP government took power. With talk of looming staff shortages throughout our public health care system, our government should be working proactively with post-secondary institutions to ensure we have the skilled workforce we need in the years ahead. Instead, Albertans are seeing a hostile approach with secret bargaining mandates and ongoing cuts to these important institutions.
ULFA members are fighting for all of us. They are standing up for their rights and taking a stance against this provincial government’s attacks on unionized workers and our public services.
We support ULFA in their call for a fair contract. We encourage those who are able to go and support the picket lines. You can find more information on the picket lines here.
