Media Advisory:
Health Care Providers in Wynyard and Lanigan are #DoneWaiting

Saskatoon – SEIU-West members will be demonstrating outside of the Wynyard Integrated Facility and the Lanigan Hospital on October 15, 2020 to show their continued frustration with the pace of SAHO bargaining and the Saskatchewan government’s refusal to negotiate a fair deal.

“We need the public to understand that our provincial government has not demonstrated any commitment to invest in the people who provide health care services in our communities – our government needs to be motivated to direct SAHO to make a fair offer with health care providers,” says Barbara Cape, President of SEIU-West. “The people of Saskatchewan deserve better from their elected officials.”
