Win of the Week! August 11-17

This week, our union found out (through the media) that the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) was planning to provide a ‘Whistleblower Hotline’ service. With reporting services already in place, this was an unnecessary and costly step that did not address the major issue in health care – understaffing. As a result, SEIU-West also went to the media to share our serious concerns (you can read our media release here) about how the costs associated with this Hotline should be used as resources towards front line care. Later that day, the SHA withdrew the Hotline proposal thanks to our push-back. This week’s win is yet another example demonstrating that when we fight, we win!
