Employees (AUPE) could be faced with a strike by the 80

- Future Summit report lacks future vision,
says AUPE president
- Alberta Union of Provincial Employees news release, 30
May 2001. Albertans will not be impressed with the report
of the so-called Future Summit and its calls to
de-unionize Alberta and impose a sales tax. Setting
aside the fact that their call to ‘de-unionize
Alberta’ borders on the unconstitutional, their
suggestion that the province adopt so-called right-to-work
legislation is a call for an assault on all Albertans.
