YARMOUTH, NS, Sept. 15 /CNW/ - Canada's largest health care union, CUPE,
will be holding an information session for health care workers in the Yarmouth
area tomorrow night, September 16.
CUPE Nova Scotia President Danny Cavanagh says, "This meeting is about
the many changes that are taking place in our province's health care system -
changes that could affect people's jobs and delivery of acute care in
Southwestern Nova Scotia."
Health care workers will hear about the MacDonald government's plans to
charge ahead with the 103 recommendations in the Corpus-Sanchez Report. CUPE
says the report is a recipe for downsizing, contracting out and even P3
hospitals - so-called Public-Private Partnerships.
(ATTENTION ASSIGNMENT/PHOTO EDITORS: The CUPE meeting is being held at
7:00 pm on Tuesday September 16 in the Bluenose Room at the Yarmouth Hospital.
Cavanagh will be in Yarmouth and available for interviews after 2:00 p.m.)
