Fort McMurray Town Hall


Years of zeros and the government’s wage directives have set our members back. A decade of 0%, 1% or 2% has meant going backwards in real dollars, since cost of living increases have been significantly higher.

Most public-sector workers in Alberta have a weaker purchasing power and lower real wages now than they did 10 years ago. Workers are finding it harder and harder to make ends meet and it is not sustainable. Recent high inflation of 6.4% percent in 2022 and 3.3% percent in 2023 has only made the situation worse.

Join us in taking a stand to raise wages and increase the collective purchasing power of workers.
