Media Advisory: Information Picket – Members of SEIU-West working at Canadian Blood Services are 1,000 Days without a Collective Agreement

Saskatoon – SEIU-West members who work for Canadian Blood Services (CBS) will be sharing information with the early risers of Saskatoon during an information picket along the sidewalks outside the Hilton Garden Inn on Thursday February 13, 2020.

“Our members at CBS are dedicated to their work and committed to providing safe, reliable services for donors and the health care system,” says Barbara Cape, President of SEIU-West. “They are simply looking for a collective agreement with their employer to provide them with stable shifts that they can rely on to make ends meet.“
