Coalition for Seniors Writes Premier on Labour Dispute

 Dear Premier Higgs

Labour Dispute 

Should the Coalition for Seniors be concerned about the recent Higgs government Labour dispute?

With 805 seniors on the wait list for Nursing Home placement and 455 in acute hospital beds. Is this cause for concern?

What about delays in assessments to determine the level of care, clean linens fresh daily, the list is endless. Children of today need the best education. Parents are not teachers they signed on to be parents.

We are monitoring the situation closely.
Many workers as we understand have not had a wage increase since 2018. 
A pension plan should be cherished and enhanced  to retire with dignity. 
Take a look at the cost of living for NB, 5.1 for September, 2021 with commodities continue to rise.

We trust you will resolve the labour dispute quickly so that citizens of NB will be able to get back to living a peaceful and normal life despite the storm of the pandemic that continues to disrupt our lives.
It’s no secret that the government has a surplus of more than $400 M, time for sharing.
We expect better from your government. 
We look forward to your quick action to resolve this dispute.

Warm Regards,
