Dear CUPE Health Care Member:

Today CUPE health care workers learned that the Saskatchewan government will be launching the new Saskatchewan Health Authority on December 4, 2017. Your bargaining committee was officially provided the notice only moments before employers announced this to all employees.

This will create a new organizational structure for the senior leadership team of the Saskatchewan Health Authority. This new organizational structure will have to be studied, and we have already begun the process of considering the impact to our members and the public.

Dear CUPE Health Care Member:

Yesterday, CUPE health care workers learned that the Saskatchewan government will be launching the new Saskatchewan Health Authority on December 4, 2017.

Dear Health Care Member:

 Your CUPE, SEIU-West, and SGEU bargaining committees resumed bargaining with SAHO September 5 to September 7 in Regina.

As our bargaining committee goes back in for another round of bargaining. It is important to remember what we are fighting for.  

Here are some of the people expected to take a wage cut. 

Help stop the cuts, remember to wear your buttons or stickers while in bargaining, and contact your MLA. Together we can do this. Bargaining goes until September 8.

REGINA: Documents obtained through an access to information (ATI) request by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) show that the Saskatchewan government is still spending tens of millions of dollars on Lean or Kaizen staff across the province, despite the public backlash and poor track record.

It’s now official. Saskatchewan’s five CUPE health care locals will be merging into one CUPE provincial health union of over 13,600 members.

The final two merger votes were held August 14. Members of Local 4980 (Sunrise Health Region) voted with a 91 percent majority to merge with other CUPE health care locals in the province, while members of Local 3967 (Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region) backed the merger with 69 percent voting in favour.

Members of the three other CUPE health care locals representing health services providers also endorsed the merger earlier this summer.

On Wednesday, August 16 at 6:30 p.m., the CUPE Health Care Council will be holding a union town hall meeting on the telephone to discuss important bargaining updates for our members.

During the town hall, you will be able to ask questions and make comments to your bargaining committee. The session will be recorded for those unable to attend.

All you have to do to participate is answer the phone when we call or call in to the members-only line. Further details will be emailed, so please updated your contact info at www.cupesaskhcc.ca.
