I’ve just read the Temporary Wage Supplement has been expanded, am I now eligible?

Answer

On July 30, the SK Government announced changes to the Temporary Wage Supplement after weeks of endless pressure from SEIU-West members, other union members and our communities. While access to the Supplement has been expanded to include health care workers who work in integrated health facilities, it still does not include hospital workers or public home care workers. SEIU-West, CUPE and SGEU have launched a petition calling for fairness on a wage subsidy for ALL health care providers – https://skhealthproviders.ca/ . Not only has President Barbara Cape sent a letter to both the Premier and the Prime Minister, our members have been sending letters to the Premier, the Minister of Health, and their MLAs on this issue. It is vital we use our collective voices to shine a light on this unjust situation - we encourage you to call and write your elected officials or email actions@seiuwest.ca for assistance.
