Say NO to privatizing our health care!
CUPE needs your help to hand out information telling the Ball Government to keep our health care facilities out of the hands of private interests.
Please join us August 2nd at the Regatta! Every CUPE member who helps will get a CUPE Trojan Horse t-shirt.
While at a meeting in Deer Lake yesterday, Minister Haggie said, “Staff from the province were meeting with three vendors interested in taking on the project.” Haggie went on to say the long-term care build is estimated at $120 to $140 million, a $20 million variance and the acute care build would see numbers over $700 million, approaching $900 million.
A $200 million variance! I don’t take a lot of comfort in these inconsistent numbers.
To volunteer, contact Sister Sherry Hillier with your availability. Please indicate whether you can volunteer for 4 hours, 2 hours, all day, in the morning or in the afternoon.
