Media Advisory: CUPE to release survey of seniors’ care workers

EDMONTON – The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) will release a survey of almost 600 employees of Alberta seniors’ and long-term care facilities next Monday.

Date: Monday, October 23rd 2006
Time:  10:30 am

Place:  Holiday Inn Express

10010 – 104 St, Edmonton
