Region 5 Members in Melville are wearing CUPE at work to support the bargaining committee during negotiations this week!
Your health care provider coalition met during the week of March 12-16, 2018 in Saskatoon with SAHO. Negotiations had previously broken off at the end of November of 2017 when we were unable to agree to a set of principles that would set us on a path to achieving a collective agreement.
5430 members in Melville took this group photo to show support for the Bargaining Committee. Remember to wear CUPE in the workplace during bargaining this week if you can in your department.
