PM #40065782 Labour Reporter Canadian October 22, 2018 CUPE grieves after Sackville, N.B., doesn't post for 2 open positions WHEN TWO positions opened at the Town of Sackville, N.B., in tourism and crosswalk-guard departments, the town decided to contract out the jobs to an em- ployment agency. "The collective agreement has been violated as the position of crosswalk-guard vacancy should have been posted as of Aug. 9, 2017," read a letter from the union, the Canadian Union of Public Em- ployees (CUPE), Local 1188, after it discovered the town contracted Open Sky Co-operative to fill the position. Edmonton health-care aide dismissed for treatment of quadriplegic patient AFTER SHE WORKED too fast and later lied about the incident, a health-care aide was termi- nated from her job. Karuna Davis worked for the Good Samaritan Society (GSS) at the Mill Woods Centre in Ed- monton for nine-and-a-half years when on July 15, 2016, Davis and another aide, Maria Heuso, at- tempted to shower a patient identified as "AB." Davis and Heuso wheeled the man — who was quadriplegic, didn't speak and had a feeding tube (stoma) in his stomach — into the shower room. AB's toe hit the door on the way in, which troubled Heuso so she then took control of the wheelchair. After they placed AB beneath the shower, Davis worked too quickly, said Heuso, and she didn't check the water temperature, as required. After AB reacted negatively to the water, Heuso checked and found it was too cold. The water then went into AB's "t-hole," said Heuso, and he struggled with his breathing.
