Win of the Week! March 18-24

SEIU-West, SAHO, and the new Saskatchewan Health Authority have reached an agreement with respect to Medical Care Leave, often a grievance issue.

Medical Care Leave will be calculated on a calendar year, rather than a fiscal year. That has been the practice of payroll for several years, which violated the CBA (collective bargaining agreement).  The 16 hours will be available to all employees under the SAHO/SEIU collective agreement, including casuals, and will not be pro-rated.  Agreement is effective as of January 1, 2018. Way to go!
