Win of the Week! August 18-24

Recently, a member and their SEIU-West Representative (Staff Rep) were in an investigation meeting. It became known that the member was experiencing critical mental health concerns so the Staff Rep shut down the meeting immediately in order to support the member in need. The Staff Rep recommended 211 Saskatchewan (a free, confidential, 24/7 service that connects individuals to human services in the province by telephone, text, or web chat - visit https://sk.211.ca/ to search for services in your community) to the member and arranged transportation to the help required, ensuring they had a way home. 

A few days later, our Staff Rep received a thank you from the member who was so grateful to their union for providing the support they needed. This win of the week is a reminder to all members that in your union, you are never alone. If you are experiencing mental health concerns, we have protocols in place to support you – please don’t hesitate to contact our Member Resource Centre (MRC)  – as always, we are stronger together.
