Member Communique

Dear CUPE Health Care Member:

The CUPE Saskatchewan Health Care Council is working with Viewpoints Research to conduct a member survey to hear from you about bargaining priorities and overall satisfaction with your union. Your participation will give us direction on priorities over the next round of bargaining.

REGINA: CUPE has serious concerns about how the creation of one province-wide health care superboard will impact workers, patients, and quality of care.

“Health care restructuring will disrupt the established systems and relationships of providing health care in the province,” said Gordon Campbell, president of CUPE Health Care Council. “Today’s announcement creates more uncertainty for frontline workers and for rural communities across Saskatchewan. It is also questionable that any cost savings will result.”

PRINCE ALBERT: Workers laid off from Saskatchewan’s public laundry facilities last fall are concerned that laundry services now provided by the private company K-Bro Linen are inadequate.
