On August 23, 2018 the Saskatchewan Health Authority met with CUPE and SGEU representatives to discuss the employer’s ongoing plan to transfer the Roy Romanow Provincial Lab workers into the Saskatchewan Health Authority.

In our meetings with the employer, they announced their intent to negotiate the transition of in-scope SGEU members into the CUPE bargaining unit within the Saskatchewan Health Authority.

We felt it was premature to enter into negotiations before consulting our members. We want to emphasize that throughout this process CUPE will protect our members’ rights under the collective agreement. In addition, we are in discussion with SGEU and will be posing questions to the employer based on our joint concerns.

We would like to have a meeting with the members at 7:00 p.m., September 13th. The meeting will be held at the Regina General Hospital in the auditorium. This meeting will allow for questions and concerns to be brought forward.

 

In solidarity,

Sandra Seitz
