Last week, I read that home care workers were now eligible for the temporary wage supplement but when I tried to apply, it didn’t work – what’s the deal?

Answer

The Saskatchewan Government included home care workers in their media release when they expanded the temporary wage supplement, however now they are backtracking and saying only private home care workers are eligible. Again, this is completely unfair and demonstrates a total disregard for the entire health care team. We continue to push for the whole health care team to be recognized for their work; we encourage you to call and write your elected officials or email actions@seiuwest.ca for assistance.
