Save the University of Calgary Bookstore
The U of C is selling off its treasured bookstore to a for-profit, American monopoly, which will likely result in higher book costs for students and layoffs for dedicated AUPE members.
But that’s not all – this short-sighted move will also put a crater in the institution’s revenue, right when it needs money the most. They don’t teach that at business school!
Stop the Sell-Off!
During the COVID-19 pandemic, private continuing-care facilities couldn’t keep vulnerable Albertans safe. So why is the UCP considering privatizing two of AHS’s largest long-term care subsidiaries, CapitalCare and Carewest?
Under this plan, corporations will make money while workers will lose money as well as jobs, and residents won’t get the home they deserve nor the support they need. Stop the privatization before it happens!
Save Advanced Education
The UCP are gutting post-secondary funding, raising tuition and forcing Alberta's prized learning institutions to sell out to corporate interests.
The move has resulted in hundreds of layoffs for AUPE support staff, who are fighting back.
