Seniors-care staff at two more Alta. Carewest sites join AUPE

340 new staff

Workers at Carewest Garrison Green and Carewest Sarcee voted to join the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees (AUPE) following worksite balloting held in December.

Approximately 180 auxiliary nursing care staff at Garrison Green and 160 at Sarcee are now represented by the union, which includes licensed practical nurses and health care aides, according to AUPE.

“We welcome the more than 340 auxiliary nursing care professionals at both Carewest sites to the AUPE family,” said Karen Weiers, vice-president of the union.

AUPE now represents nine Carewest sites in Calgary in both auxiliary nursing care and general support services.
