Nurses to hold Day of Action information pickets across Alberta

reposted from una.ab.ca

After 18 months on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic, Alberta’s nurses are exhausted and overworked.

Nurses go to work every day to make sure Albertans get the best and safest patient care possible. What we want most is fairness in the workplace.

Beds are closing because hospitals are short of nurses. This is because of the pandemic burnout and a long history of understaffing nurses.

Alberta needs nurses.

The roll backs proposed by the government are an insult to nurses and won’t help Alberta recruit and keep health care workers, which is what we need to keep hospital beds open.

Money is not the only issue in these talks. They want to roll back provisions that nurses have had for decades, including a very important rule that a Registered Nurse or Registered Psychiatric Nurse is in-charge of Nursing Units.

It’s about safe patient care.

Nurses want to able to focus on safe patient care. But that’s hard to do when hospitals are under- staffed and the government is attacking nurses and health care workers.

Alberta’s nurses are holding information pickets across Alberta to raise concerns about how understaffing, closed beds and rollbacks will impact patient care in Alberta. This list will be updated as more information pickets are announced.

Here is the list of info-pickets: https://www.una.ca/1267/una-day-of-action-on-august-11
