Public sector employees will rally against the proposed provincial pension reforms at three sites in Red Deer on Thursday.
Alberta Finance Minister Doug Horner will introduce new rules for public sector employees in order to wipe out $7.4 billion in unfunded liability later this spring.
Unions in the province have spoken out against the proposed changes, indicating that the cuts would be bad for the province.
The lunchtime rallies have been scheduled at Red Deer College, Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre and City Hall.
Protestors will assemble at 28 sites in Red Deer, Edmonton, St. Albert, Calgary, Hinton, Fort McMurray, Medicine Hat, Grande Prairie, Peace River and Camrose around noon.’’’
