Media Release: Provincial budget is balanced in favour of bureaucracy, at the expense of front line care says CUPE health care workers

(Regina) Yesterday’s provincial budget is balanced in favour of bureaucracy, at the expense of front line care, says CUPE Local 5430.

The merger of 12 health regions into the Saskatchewan Health Authority was predicted to save $20 million annually, with all savings being directed to front line care.  But there is little evidence to show that such cost savings were realized.

“Where are all of the savings we were promised from the amalgamation?  Where is the support for front line workers who deliver hands on care?” said Sandra Seitz, President of CUPE Local 5430.  “This budget shows us that executive salaries have continued to grow, while front line workers are doing more with less.”

CUPE members are facing unprecedented workloads due to understaffing, underfunding and higher patient acuity and resident care needs.  This results in more exhaustion, workplace violence and injuries.

(Regina) More than a dozen people from the communities of Grenfell and Broadview joined the NDP at the Legislature today to call on the government to restore publicly funded, publicly delivered long-term care in Grenfell. This call has been consistently made in the nearly seven months since the long-term care centre in Grenfell was shut down because it was riddled with mold and asbestos.

“The people of this community have been working tirelessly to raise money to get their facility back, but they’ve been left in the dark by the Sask. Party,” said NDP Seniors Critic Danielle Chartier. “They don’t want those jobs that serve the community to go to a private corporation, they want them to remain public.”
