For a generation, Alberta has been the province Canadians turn to when seeking opportunity.
Alberta’s stable and non-confrontational labour environment has played a significant role in attracting investment and new businesses, and providing tens of thousands of Canadians with unparalleled career opportunities.
- Alberta still has the highest wages in Canada, almost 20% higher than the national average
- Alberta has the highest percentage of people in the workforce of any province in Canada
- Our fair and flexible labour laws have helped Alberta achieve a level of prosperity and employment that is the envy of the country
Over the last year Alberta union leaders have been quietly advocating for significant changes to Alberta’s labour laws.
The government has since confirmed that they will be introducing changes this spring. Why risk that with divisive and expensive changes to our labour laws?
The last thing we need right now is more uncertainty and the threat of division and confrontation in Alberta workplaces.
Alberta has a reputation as the place to come for opportunity.
We want to make sure it stays that way.
