SEIU-West is happy to be back at the Festival of Trees in Saskatoon this year! Thousands of visitors to the Festival are delighted when they arrive to see a collection of beautifully decorated trees, sponsored by various organizations including our very own SEIU-West tree.

SEIU-West is particularly excited to see that the proceeds of the Festival will benefit patients and staff at Saskatoon City Hospital!

As is our tradition with this Festival, we want to support this great cause with a contest! We know decorating a tree is a wonderful way to spread holiday cheer – that’s why we’re holding a contest to determine who will be our SEIU-West Tree Decorating Team! If your team wins, you’ll all be invited to join the decorating day at the Western Development Museum on November 21 helping to make our union’s tree, “Wrapped in Purple”, become a reality! All your lost wages and expenses will be covered by SEIU-West! Decorations will also be provided.

How to enter?

  • Teams can be no more than 2-4 people, and all team members must work at the same facility.
  • As a team, we ask that you answer the following questions:
    • Why does your team think SEIU-West is the best union in Saskatchewan?
    • How does your team build solidarity and Purple Pride at your workplace?

Send your team answers to [email protected]


The deadline to enter is November 3, 2019.


The winning team will not only get to decorate the tree, but they’ll also have a chance to win the SEIU-West decorated tree that will be on display at the Festival of Trees to showcase at their workplace!
