Waging Ahead

Alberta needs a raise!

Join us for a crucial discussion on CUPE Alberta’s ‘Waging Ahead’ campaign.

CUPE Alberta President Rory Gill is touring the province, holding 17 town hall meetings about the need for higher wages for workers, and building an action plan to get them!

Years of zeros and government wage directives have set our members back. A decade of 0%, 1% or 2% wage increases have hurt, since cost of living increases have been significantly higher.

Workers in Alberta have a weaker purchasing power and lower real wages now than we did 10 years ago. We’re finding it harder to make ends meet and it is not sustainable. Recent high inflation of 6.4% percent in 2022 and 3.3% percent in 2023 has only made the situation worse.

Be part of the movement to stand up for higher wages and enhance the collective purchasing power of workers.
