“My expectation is that all unions respect the bargaining process, stop putting Albertans’ safety at risk and abide by the law," Minister Travis Toews said.
Can I please have $5 for every time Shandro, Toews and the gang use the word ‘illegal’ in the #ableg today relation to the strike? I would be set for life by now.
The UCP tore up the contracts.
Now Toews is lying to our face.
This is NOT the leadership we need right now.
Alberta workers are demanding Premier Kenney and Minister Toews get back to the negotiation table and stop playing games with our healthcare system. The chaos and uncertainty the UCP caused could have been avoided. They must fix this now. #ableg #abhealth
Here's a statement from Finance Minister Travis Toews. Both the Minister and AHS call the wildcat strikes illegal. Unions say it is up to the Labour Relations Board to determine the legality, not the employer.
Steve Buick and Tyler Shandro suck so bad at media, the UCP didn't even TRY to come up with a believable excuse for putting Toews up there instead. #ableg https://t.co/JWGoV0Vija
In Question Period, just now
Travis Toews: We appreciate health care workers.
Also Travis Toews: Here's your layoff notice, health care workers.

Assuming Rossi makes the NHL right away, I can't remember the last time a team added two star-level talents like this at the same time. Perhaps Chicago adding Kane and Toews in 2007-08? https://t.co/kS5H5XmDdD
There are 11 unsettled arbitration hearings left and I have player cards for most.
#IStandWithAUPE and ANY other workers stepping off the job. Alberta is a bloody mess with the #ucpcorrupt disrupting EVERY sector across the province. This wildcat strike is on Corporate Alberta, Kenney, Shandro, and Toews. Your greed and corruption are destroying AB. #ableg
Interesting. Toews commenting on insurance action later this week.
Is that a warning?
#Albertans How do you feel about paying higher insurance rates & insurance companies showing giant profits?
Contact your MLA.
Also - some school insurance went up 400%. NOT in the budget.
Also my note: we did ask to speak to the health minister today, but because labour negotiations are a financial matter, the government provided Finance Minister Toews. We'll see if Health Minister Shandro is in Question Period today. #ableg
It’s not ‘union bosses” but rather Shandro, Toews and Kenney that have done so. The people I stood with this afternoon just want to do a good job and feel that they need to protect health care. #IStandWithAUPE
has shown no interest in respecting bargaining or contracts for pretty much anyone, Toews expecting the people they're screwing to play nice is...well, evidence of his hypocrisy and #UCPcorruption
Jon Carson says the Automobile Insurance Rate Board has approved hikes as high as 30 per cent. How can you sit by while Alberta faces rate hikes.
Toews says look for some action later this week on insurance
Carson says insurance skyrocketed during a pandemic when many are barely driving. Insurance rates were one-sixth what they were now under the NDP government. Why won't you take action to lower rates during the pandemic?
Toews says that's a whole lot of misinformation
The Pension War Room™️ reminds you that it was one year ago almost to the day that Travis Toews took a run at the pensions of all of these workers. #ABLeg https://t.co/NoFXqgNSuL
Toews: since we are the ucp we might funnel your pension through the money laundering war room.
Toews says the only ones causing chaos are the opposition and illegal strikers
"I'm calling on all health care workers to get back on the job"
One year ago today I had a drink called the Uncle Fester, was dressed as Jessica Rabbit, and did the dishes whilst arguing with my future boyfriend about Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews
Source: The Avalanche are expected to sign RFA D-Man Devon Toews prior to the arbitration hearing on Saturday.
Toews doesn’t know how a moral govt operates.
I’m sure insurance companies and the #UCPmafia are great pals.
Looks like the government is sticking to the argument that laundry and housekeeping are not front-line, and jobs shifting to private contractors don't count as layoffs, as Toews said there were no layoffs "of front-line health care delivery employees." https://t.co/E9uJa9tKqM
Toews says they will carefully proceed with frontline workers so more money can go to frontline services. Minister of health is making key moves to deliver services effectively and efficiently
