SAHO/SEIU-West Bargaining Bulletin (2nd edition) No. 15

Date: June 17, 2020

Greetings Sisters and Brothers,

The SEIU-West bargaining committee along with members of our Political Action and Awareness committee and Provincial Contract Action Team (ProCAT) took action by going to the Legislature on Tuesday June 16 to call out the Government of Saskatchewan to get back to the bargaining table with the ‘flexibility’ to reach a deal. This was especially timely in light of the provincial government’s budget announcement Monday that outlined increases to the health care budget, but nothing for front line health care providers.

Dear Honourable Premier Moe & Ministers Morgan, Reiter & Kaeding,

SAHO/SEIU-West Bargaining Bulletin (2nd edition) No. 13

Date: May 5, 2020

Greetings Sisters and Brothers,

As you are no doubt aware, due to the State of Emergency declared by the provincial government on or about March 17, 2020, our bargaining dates for the weeks of April 6 and 14 were cancelled. The focus for the Employer side was on managing the pandemic planning and the priority for the Union was providing support and assurance for our front line members.

President's Message - Put Care First!

Sisters and Brothers,

Your Provincial Contract Action Team (ProCAT) is looking to ramp up our efforts to demand fairness and safety in health care.

We’ll be looking to our members to help ensure their communities are aware of the severe understaffing happening in health care.

A fair contract would definitely help.

If you are interested in setting up a Put Care first end understaffing event (i.e. info picket, leafleting, etc.) in your community, reach out to your ProCAT member or use the event request form to let us know.

We will provide the resources such as leaflets, necessary funding, checklists, etc. but it is vital to have a local unit members engaged and involved.

We all have to work together to keep up the pressure so we can successfully resolve this collective agreement.

Please remember to show your support for our bargaining efforts.  You can contact the Minister of Finance, Donna Harpauer (306) 787-6060 OR [email protected];  the Minister of Health, Jim Reiter (306) 787-7345 OR [email protected]; the new Minister of Rural and Remote Health, Warren Kaeding (306) 798-9014 OR [email protected]; or your very own MLA. Explain to them the need for a fair offer; and how an adequate monetary package is necessary to recruit and retain quality staff. You can also send a letter to your MLA with a simply click on our www.EndUnderstaffing.ca campaign. If you would like some assistance, call the MRC at 1-888-999-7348 extension 1 and an officer will put you in contact with someone who will help you.

Remember we’re all in this together!

Please keep an eye on the SEIU-West website and your union bulletin board. And follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for information updates.

In solidarity,

Barbara Cape, SEIU-West President
