“This election presents a clear choice for Albertans. On the one hand, Rachel Notley is leading Alberta’s transition towards a diversified economy. She’s strengthening hospitals and schools. In short, she has a vision to build the province.
Jason Kenney is yesterday’s man. Yesterday’s social views. Yesterday’s ideas about Alberta’s economy. He has nothing to offer a changing province.”
— Jerry Dias, Unifor National President

Rank-and-file Unifor activists will begin a campaign to mobilize fellow members to vote on election day and get involved in local campaigns that reflect their values.
"This election presents a clear choice for Albertans. Rachel Notley is leading Alberta's transition towards a diversified economy," said Jerry Dias, Unifor National President. "She's strengthening hospitals and schools. In short, she has a vision to build the province."
Dozens of Unifor members met earlier this spring to hone their election campaigning skills and review a plan for member-to-member outreach. From Suncor in the Oilsands to the Edmonton Catholic school board, Unifor has a diverse membership in Alberta.
With the global price collapse of oil, Alberta needs a leader with a plan and Notley has proven she understands an evolving energy sector and the need for diversification,” said Joie Warnock, Western Regional Director.
Warnock and Dias say they are concerned about what they have heard from United Conservative Party leader Jason Kenney in the last year.
"It's become obvious that Albertans can't trust Jason Kenney to build the province's future," said Dias. "From turning back the clock on workers' rights to go reversing progress with a transitioning economy, Jason Kenney has nothing to offer," said Dias.
