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.

Viewpoints is one of the industry leaders in opinion research, and we have worked with them in the past, including a bargaining survey prior to our last round of negotiations.

Individual responses will be kept strictly confidential, and no comments you make in the survey will be attributed to members.

Viewpoints started calling our membership on January 3rd using the CUPE Health Care Council phone number, and we anticipate calling will continue for two weeks. During this time period, if you see the CUPE Health Care Council’s number (306-546-2185) on your telephone, and you have missed the call, there will be no need for you to return the call, as you may be selected at a later time to participate in the survey.

The survey will take approximately 15-20 minutes of your time to complete.

Thank you for your time in participating in the survey.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact your CUPE local office:

CUPE Local 3967 (Employees of the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region)

CUPE Local 4777 (Employees of the Prince Albert Parkland Health Region)

CUPE Local 4980 (Employees of the Sunrise Health Region)

CUPE Local 5111 (Employees of the Prairie North Health Region)

CUPE Local 5999 (Employees of the Sun Country Health Region)

In Solidarity,

Your Health Care Council Executive

Gordon Campbell, Pearl Blommaert, Sandra Seitz, Jim Carr, Scott McDonald, Helen Sawatsky, Donna Krawetz, Brian Manegre, and Wanda Edwards
