Working for Edmonton
Protecting public services is one of the core tenants of Canada’s public sector unions.
As unionists, mutual respect, cooperation, and understanding are some of our goals. We defend our members rights, lobby to increase all worker rights, and will always stand up to defend public services
Tell City Council,
don’t take away our community services
The City of Edmonton wants to privatize services that make Edmonton great.
It’s shocking that a City proud of its forward vision could be so short-sighted.
The upkeep of parks where children play, the maintenance of the roads we drive on, the rec centres our families visit, all of that will decrease in quality and increase in price if council moves forward.
Edmonton has experimented in the past with privatized services and ended in failure. Privatized swimming pools were brought back in house due to poor service and weak safety standards. Commercial trash collection resulted in overflowing bins and unsanitary conditions.
Every time Edmonton tries to privatize civic services, it ends in failure.
We all helped keep our community safe over the past year. Losing the value of what we love in our city shouldn’t be the reward. Together, we can win.
We are the men and women behind-the-scenes who deliver services that keep Edmonton vibrant and strong. From creating safe drinking water, to keeping kids safe in the water, we love our jobs and our city. We don’t want to see either sold off.
The City of Edmonton budget negotiations are putting our services and safety at risk. You can help.
Council listens to Edmontonian’s. They will listen to you. Please send a letter today.
