MEDICINE HAT Employees of the Palliser Health Region have a new tool to fight their employers push for concessions.
CUPE Local 189 has established a web site to communicate with their members and the public in their efforts to get a new collective agreement.
President Colleen Morrison says the site, www.189.cupe.ca, came about after the local decided it needed to improve communications.
We want our members to have easy access to our bulletins, our news releases, our collective agreement, and our by-laws, said Morrison. And the public wants to hear our side of the story about the bargaining situation hopefully, our site can live up to that challenge.
