Media Advisory: #DoneWaiting

For Immediate Release - August 11, 2020

Saskatoon – SEIU-West members will be outside of various health care facilities in Saskatoon on Wednesday August 12, 2020 to demonstrate their frustration with the pace of bargaining and the Saskatchewan government’s refusal to negotiate a fair deal.

“Our members were tired, and burned out prior to the pandemic,” says Barbara Cape, President of SEIU-West. “And they’ve held up their end of the deal to provide skilled professional care that bent the infection rate of COVID-19. It’s time for SAHO and the Sask Party government to do the same.”
