2021 Labour Day Winners!!!

We want to  thank the over 150 SEIU-West members who entered our Labour Day contest.

This contest was so popular, we decided to double the amount of prizes from three to six!

We drew for five $25 Co-Op gift cards from the pool of members who got all six questions right and the grand prize winner of a $50 Co-Op gift card was drawn from the group of people who got all six questions AND the bonus question correct.

The answers to the questions were:

TRUE:  Unions were created by workers that wanted better working conditions.
TRUE:  Unions fought for and won Maternity and Parental Leave.
TRUE-ISH:

Unions fought for and won equal pay for equal work in workplaces, regardless of gender.

(There’s still lots of work to do to achieve gender equality in the workplace. Check out the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) Gender Equality issues page for more resources.)

TRUE:  Vacation pay exists because of unions’ fight for paid days off.
TRUE:   Workers in Saskatchewan recently fought for and won interpersonal violence leave. This allows 5 paid and 5 unpaid days away from work to access supports or relocate to a new home.
FALSE: Unions have no further goals, our workplaces are perfect.
Bonus MRC question:

Education Week: 2020

From November 22-28, SEIU-West is proud to recognize and celebrate Education Week!

SEIU-West is pleased to acknowledge the work that Education Assistants, Library Technicians, Custodians, Tradespeople, Food Service Workers, Administrative Assistants, and School Bus Drivers do to prepare students for tomorrow. The SEIU-West education team ensure our children experience quality education by:

  • Assisting teachers to provide tailor-made education for students;
  • Ensuring school offices and administrative details run smoothly;
  • Providing healthy meals to keep young minds strong;
  • Driving and maintaining the buses so our children make it home safely; and
  • Creating safe schools and grounds for students to enjoy.

With the COVID-19 pandemic, Education Workers are going above and beyond to ensure the safety of students. We know you’re working hard, and are often faced with inadequate plans from our government – as with all front line workers during COVID-19, you should have a wage supplement to demonstrate the value you bring to our communities during these trying times. We continue to work on this front and hope you will connect with your newly elected MLA on this issue as well.

In recognition of our Education team, we encourage you to participate in the Education Week Contest!

Let us know about an Education Worker (must be a SEIU-West member) who goes above and beyond in their work – you and your nominee could win a gift card or SEIU-West swag!

Enter the contest by November 29, 2020 to [email protected] for your chance to win!
