More layoffs coming: 930 Government of Alberta jobs on the line. The cuts could impact up to 546 positions in Community and Social Services and 247 in Agriculture and Forestry, according to AUPE letter.
Most of the 11,000 job UCP government cuts will come from privatization: 2,000 laboratory jobs, 4,000 housekeeping jobs, 3,000 food service jobs, and 400 laundry jobs. Plus, 800 clinical staff jobs will be lost through attrition.
More than half of all physicians at one central Alberta clinic will leave the province next spring, the latest escalation in an ongoing dispute between doctors and the province’s UCP government.
UCP funding cuts have forced the Calgary Board of Education to cut 70% of its bus attendants' positions. Not only are people losing their jobs but their absence will put special needs students at risk.
