Following up on last week's post of CLC and UFCW ads, below is the Alberta Union of Provincial Employees latest ad attacking government policy and, more directly, the broken promises of the Redford government.
These ads are nicely timed with Redford's leadership review and are clearly aimed at heightening the political costs of public sector cuts. The Alberta Teachers' Association has also come out swinging.
It is interesting to see how deeply and quickly Redford has alienated public-sector unions that supported her in the last election.
