Pensions Day of Action

The Redford government is weakening your pension plans with changes that will mean you have to work longer for a smaller benefit that may not keep up with the cost of living. On March 20, stand with union members across Alberta to defend your pension.

Join us on the quad outside the south entrance of the MacEwan Student Centre or at the Foothills campus to protest the draconian changes the PC government wants to make to your pension. The Alberta Labour Coalition on Pensions has organized a series of rallies across Alberta to take place from 11:30 until 1:00 on March 20. We understand that not everyone will be able to attend the entire rally, so we're planning to concentrate our efforts from noon until 12:30.

If you'd like to help at the main U of C campus, please email Tara Doyle ( No contribution is too small! You can also download a poster to display here: 14048DayofAction_PensionRalliesCalgary.pdf/ and more information about the rallies can be found at AUPE's website:
