Frontline healthcare workers have quit their jobs in parts of the province, the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees said Monday

« Anger has been mounting among members for months, » AUPE president Guy Smith said in a press release Monday morning

« Support nurses decided today there was no choice but to fight to protect Albertans at risk, especially during the deadliest pandemic in a century In Constantly reducing public health care staff, this government is pushing our members to breaking point exactly when Albertans need it most »
