Dear Health Care Member:

The provider union coalition bargaining committees met with SAHO and employer representatives on February 20. The parties continued to meet on February 21 and February 22.

The parties reached a tentative agreement on each of our collective agreements, including issues common to all three unions and a wage settlement. The health provider unions’ bargaining committees will be seeking direction from our members by way of a ratification vote on the tentative agreement.

Coalition Bargaining Committees Reject SAHO’s Bully Tactics

Dear Health Care Member:

Your coalition bargaining committees were asked to return to the bargaining table with SAHO, and agreed to do so, on February 8, 2019. The provider unions were ready to negotiate. The only outstanding item was a fair and reasonable wage increase. In December, a substantial amount of members told their bargaining committees SAHO’s final wage offer of (0%, 0%, 1%, 2%) was neither reasonable nor acceptable. Your bargaining committees conveyed that message to SAHO.

SAHO and the employer committee responded with an ultimatum. They said accept the wage offer (0%, 0%, 1%, 2%) by noon on February 15, 2019 OR the items that have been agreed to in principle and the wage offer will disappear. They were specific that the provider unions would be faced with the initial SAHO and employer rollback proposals and their proposed cuts to get to -3.5%.

Of course, the provider unions were extremely provoked by SAHO’s response. The committees felt SAHO’s strong arm tactics were just like schoolyard bullying, such as ‘give me your lunch money or you will get beat up’. These tactics are not good faith bargaining. It seems SAHO and the employer are not truly trying to reach a collective agreement. SAHO’s response is not moving the parties closer together. In fact, their response is moving negotiations backwards to the place we were over a year ago.

back to bargainingYour CUPE 5430 bargaining committee with be joining with our coalition partners, SGEU and SEIU-West, will resume bargaining with SAHO this Friday, February 8 in Saskatoon. Show your support and wear CUPE in the workplace, and stay tuned for updates.

Member Communique: Security Service Review

On February 4, 2019 the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) released the final report from their province-wide security review. The report outlines 27 recommendations for a centrally-managed security services program.

The review was conducted by external consultant Tony Weeks from BigLeap Consultation and Advisory Services.

CUPE wants to acknowledge the vital role security service members play in keeping patients and our co-workers safe.
