Monica Jonas, a special care aide from Humbolt Saskatchewan set up a web page in support of her local, local 3970 and the other 12,000 health care workers in the province who were on strike this past week. The URL is: http://www.homestead.com/desertgold53/strike.html

She writes:

We are not asking for a 42% raise as the Prime Minister will recieve this year. We are not asking for a 20% raise as the Members of Parliament will vote in for themselves. We are not asking for an 82% personal pension increase as our Prime Minister will recieve should he stay in office for another 5 years.

We are fighting for a manageable workload, a better pension plan so our members do not have to retire in poverty, paid family-personal leave and parity with other health workers.
