AUPE wishes to extend our sympathies to the families and coworkers of the two RCMP officers injured in St. Albert last night.
“These tragic shootings underscore the kinds of dangers faced everyday by police and peace officers across Alberta,” said AUPE President Guy Smith. “Our thoughts are with the injured officers and their families and colleagues on this difficult day.”
AUPE’s Women’s Committee met yesterday with United Way’s Coordinator of Labour Programs, Perry Garvin at AUPE headquarters in Edmonton. The Women’s Committee aims to educate and promote awareness to union members and the public on equality, discrimination and other issues as they relate to women.
