News

We have been receiving a lot of calls from our members about going to help at Parkside Extendicare. This for-profit long-term care facility is experiencing a serious outbreak of COVID-19 that has seen well over one hundred residents test positive. In addition to this, many of their staff have tested positive or are off self-isolating due to exposure.

As you may know, this is not a Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) facility, nor is it an affiliate through the Saskatchewan Association of Health Organizations (SAHO). As such, there is not a mechanism to move our members there through the collective agreement nor through the temporary letter of understanding on redeployment, labour pools, and cohorting.

The CUPE Local 5430 Executive Board, Regional Officers and Membership, would like to thank Sister Pearl Blommaert and Brother Jim Carr for their many years of activism.

We wish you both, a Happy and Healthy Retirement.

We are reaching out to you to express our concern that not enough is being done by the Government of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Health Authority as the numbers of positive cases of COVID-19 skyrocket across the province.

We have issued a press release calling on the Saskatchewan Health Authority and the government to do more. We cannot continue to work short and without the resources we need. We also have written to Scott Livingstone, CEO of the Saskatchewan Health Authority, calling for adequate staffing and appropriate PPE practices as per the principles agreed to by the health care unions and the government back in May.

Dear Mr. Livingstone:

I write today on behalf of the 14,000 CUPE health care providers who are members of CUPE Local 5430.

Working conditions in Saskatchewan health care facilities are at a breaking point. Cases of COVID-19 across the province are rising, and infections and exposures of health care providers are making a short staffing situation even worse.

In facilities where there are outbreaks, staffing should be enhanced. Caring for patients or residents on isolation is much different than caring for patients and residents who are not. The donning and doffing of PPE, increased cleaning protocols, meeting mental health and social needs of isolated patients and residents, and in room dining are just a few examples of the extra burden that is felt by health care providers. This is not happening.
