Premiers Must Improve Healthcare

Canada's premiers must seize the opportunity to push for improvements to pensions, healthcare, and the economy, says Paul Moist, national president of the Canadian Union of Public Employees. "Provincial and territorial governments need stable and adequate funding from the federal government to ensure that all Canadians receive the same high-quality publically delivered healthcare in every community across the country," says Moist. "The federal government must stop neglecting its responsibility to protect our public healthcare system and come to the table with provinces and territories to negotiate a new 10-year health accord with stable and adequate funding, including at minimum the six per cent escalator." CUPE is joining with other unions and civil society groups to urge the premiers to tackle critical issues facing Canada, including the pressing need for the federal government to take action on healthcare and retirement security.
