UPDATE: Info-Picket Turned Rally, now at Kinsmen Park!
It’s no secret that health care providers in Saskatchewan work with fewer staff that what is required for safe patient, resident, and client care. Understaffing combined with increased care levels is resulting in a crisis that is causing many current or potential health care providers to choose another profession. The bottom line: the health care environment is simply not attracting new staff to join, or doing enough to keep frontline health care providers.
It’s time to take action. Volunteer to join us for a rally to put care first! We’ll be joined by our union coalition partners and hear from speakers including Saskatchewan Federation of Labour President Lori Johb, SEIU-West Vice-President Neil Colmin, and SEIU-West Treasurer Janice Platzke.
WHEN: Sunday, September 29 from 11:00am to 1:00pm
WHERE: Kinsmen Park picnic shelter (619 25 St E, Saskatoon)
WHY: It is vital that we join together to demand a health care environment that ensures the safety of patients, residents, and staff. We must tell our government to create a health care sector that attracts and retains care providers!
If you’re not in the Saskatoon area, take a picture with a sign demanding safe staffing levels and send it to [email protected]. You can also send a letter to decision makers at www.endunderstaffing.ca
