Between 1997 and 2006, the AUPE was rebuilt. While membership continued to decline in the early years of the decade, the framework conditions were finally reversed. A booming economy, facing a labour shortage, has improved the climate of organization and negotiation. AUPE has folded its collective muscles into illegal but effective work operations and has begun to gather an unprecedented number of new members through mergers and organization. Non-committee representatives may make presentations at meetings with the agreement of the co-chairs and a written submission is proposed to the co-chairs prior to the meeting. The topics to be discussed have already been put on the agenda. « Jason Kenney has promised us jobs, but all he has brought is pain, with layoffs, cuts, cuts, cuts to the public service and tax breaks for billionaires that hurt everyone, » AUPE President Guy Smith said in a statement Wednesday. You can view the agreement in the following pages. You will also find here a PDF file of the full agreement. « I use the word « essential » very carefully, » he added. « Because the government tends to use it in a way that means you have to go to work, no matter what. » « So I think workers are wondering why they have to bear the cost of these government decisions. » The AUPE organized itself aggressively to compensate for the losses of government members, but negotiations became more difficult than ever and the profits were marginal. When the reductions continued until 1988, membership continued to decline and revenues fell.

The collective agreement has expired and is currently being renegotiated by the Alberta government and the Alberta Provincial Employees Association. As a result, printed copies of the agreement are not currently distributed. This re-opening of wages should not be construed as an « opening of the agreement » to negotiations on other issues by any of the parties. review and consider all other points of the agreement between the parties with respect to the area concerned; In 1996, the fight against AUPE began to bear fruit. In late 1995, launderers at Calgary`s Foothills Hospital began a week-long wildcat strike to protest the Calgary Health region`s decision to assign a laundry service to Edmonton-based K-Bro. With the overwhelming support of other AUPE residents, unions and the Calgary public, the workers forced Premier Klein to make a concession. All amendment recommendations must be approved by the majority of committee members and, if adopted by the employer and the Union, they can be implemented by mutual agreement. In 1982, AUPE established its new headquarters on 170 Street in Edmonton and established regional offices across the province. When the government tried to impose an 8% cap on arbitrators for annual salary increases, AUPE launched a campaign called « The Apple Rides Again » – and urged the government to remind the government of what had happened in 1980. With the risk of a conflict in the air, AUPE has gained great gains in conciliation, far more than the First « eight percent solution ». This agreement applies only to workers in positions under ancillary agreements #006.

Excluded groups are: Difficult times hit Alberta in 1983 and the government began to cut jobs. The number of AUPE members had reached 52,500, but had fallen to 47,500 by 1984. The UNION has responded with an aggressive organisation in local authorities and in the health sector. AUPE remains active in the labour and provincial movement in Alberta. In the fall of 2007, she ran a major campaign to lobby for changes to Alberta`s labour laws that prohibit strikes by most AUPE members.
