Media Advisory: Health Care Providers are #DoneWaiting

For Immediate Release - September 17, 2020

Saskatoon – SEIU-West members will be demonstrating outside of Cypress Regional Hospital and the Meadows long term care facility in Swift Current on September 17, 2020 to show their continued frustration with the pace of SAHO bargaining and the Saskatchewan government’s refusal to negotiate a fair deal.

“Our government needs to realize that their current mandate is just not enough,” says Barbara Cape, President of SEIU-West. “We call on the public to support this added investment for the current and future viability of our provincial health care system.”
