Finance Minister Travis Toews in a Thursday afternoon news release said he is “extremely disappointed” with UNA leadership’s rejection of Alberta Health Services’ (AHS) proposal to delay labour negotiations.

But the UNA says enough time has gone by since the leadership agreed to press pause on collective agreement negotiations when the pandemic struck the province in March. Now, it’s asking AHS to resume bargaining talks Nov. 16.

AHS “rejected that proposal, instead suggesting that the two bargaining teams next meet on March 31, 2021,” the union said in a Thursday statement.

“UNA declined the AHS position to delay negotiations until 2021, as well as an offer to delay layoffs until that date. UNA believes that any layoffs should be

Morgan Stanley Bets on These 3 Stocks; Sees Over 40% Upside

Did the stock market’s epic rally just need a little breather? The last few weeks have seen stocks experience their first meaningful correction since the bull market kicked off in March. Now, the question swirling around the Street is, will the rally pick back up again, or is more downside on the way?According to Morgan Stanley’s chief U.S. equity strategist Mike Wilson, uncertainty regarding the presidential election and stalemate on the next stimulus package could lead to declines in September and October. “On the correction, there’s still downside as markets digest the risk of congressional gridlock on the next fiscal deal.
