A Pessimistic Labour Day Message From CUPE

In its Labour Day message, The Canadian Union of Public Employees is warning workers will be facing many challenges in the months ahead.

Provincial President Daniel Legere tells CHSJ News there's alot of uncertainty about what lies ahead because of all the talk of belt tightening in government with the worst yet to come.

CUPE is also accusing the Alward Government of leading the province to the financial brink by continuing to cut taxes and reducing public services due to a lack of revenue. According to Legere, this province can't afford to adopt the same economic policies as Alberta.

Legere predicts wage parity isn't going to happen in this province without legislation.
