Greetings Sisters and Brothers,
The sale of West Park Crossing to Sienna-Sabre LP, is expected to be finalized in the month of June 2022. Previously scheduled Bargaining dates of April 13 and April 14 were cancelled by the Employer due to this impending sale. Bargaining has been “put on hold” until Sienna-Sabre takes possession of the property. We have been in communication with Sienna-Sabre regarding Collective Bargaining, and have been assured we will be proceeding, once the sale is complete. No additional dates have been set at this time.
This sale should not affect the Union’s right to continue to negotiate on your behalf. The Saskatchewan Employment Act (SEA) sets out the new employer’s obligations with respect to successorship, their obligation to recognize the Union, and to continue to bargain in good faith. This legislation will ensure that SEIU-West will continue to be your Union and will continue to represent you and advocate on your behalf, in all employment related matters.
Stay tuned for further updates and remember to check out your Union Bulletin Board, or seiuwest.ca for further updates. Your Bargaining Committee members, Selene Desjardins and Rubilyn Mercene, will continue to communicate with you, and keep you up to date.
If you have any questions about your workplace, please contact the Member Resource Centre (MRC) at 1-888-999-7348 ex. 2298 or email them directly at [email protected]. The MRC Officers will be able to assist you or will refer your question if necessary.
Your participation in your Union makes us all strong!
