Media Advisory: Health Care Providers in Shaunavon are #DoneWaiting

Saskatoon – SEIU-West members will be demonstrating outside of Shaunavon Hospital & Care Centre on October 9, 2020 to show their heightened frustration with SAHO bargaining and the Saskatchewan government’s refusal to fund a fair deal.

“Our members are committed to demanding a fair offer from SAHO,” says Barbara Cape, President of SEIU-West. “It’s going to take a demonstration of commitment from our provincial government to invest in the people who provide our public health care services in all of our communities. Our members want the public to know that they are done waiting.”
