HEU members working at a North Vancouver seniors home got fundraising letters from their employer the same week they were laid off. The workers were asked to contribute to a fund to build a new assisted-living department.

Asking for money off our paycheques to support this restructuring after so many of us have lost our jobs proves the government is heartless, one worker told a North Vancouver newspaper. We feel the government has just added insult to injury by asking us to donate money. They need to dig deeper into their own pockets and leave ours alone.
