Media Release: Provincial budget is balanced in favour of bureaucracy, at the expense of front line care says CUPE health care workers

(Regina) Yesterday’s provincial budget is balanced in favour of bureaucracy, at the expense of front line care, says CUPE Local 5430.

The merger of 12 health regions into the Saskatchewan Health Authority was predicted to save $20 million annually, with all savings being directed to front line care.  But there is little evidence to show that such cost savings were realized.

“Where are all of the savings we were promised from the amalgamation?  Where is the support for front line workers who deliver hands on care?” said Sandra Seitz, President of CUPE Local 5430.  “This budget shows us that executive salaries have continued to grow, while front line workers are doing more with less.”

CUPE members are facing unprecedented workloads due to understaffing, underfunding and higher patient acuity and resident care needs.  This results in more exhaustion, workplace violence and injuries.

(Regina) More than a dozen people from the communities of Grenfell and Broadview joined the NDP at the Legislature today to call on the government to restore publicly funded, publicly delivered long-term care in Grenfell. This call has been consistently made in the nearly seven months since the long-term care centre in Grenfell was shut down because it was riddled with mold and asbestos.

“The people of this community have been working tirelessly to raise money to get their facility back, but they’ve been left in the dark by the Sask. Party,” said NDP Seniors Critic Danielle Chartier. “They don’t want those jobs that serve the community to go to a private corporation, they want them to remain public.”

Coalition Bargaining Committees Reject SAHO’s Bully Tactics

Dear Health Care Member:

Your coalition bargaining committees were asked to return to the bargaining table with SAHO, and agreed to do so, on February 8, 2019. The provider unions were ready to negotiate. The only outstanding item was a fair and reasonable wage increase. In December, a substantial amount of members told their bargaining committees SAHO’s final wage offer of (0%, 0%, 1%, 2%) was neither reasonable nor acceptable. Your bargaining committees conveyed that message to SAHO.

SAHO and the employer committee responded with an ultimatum. They said accept the wage offer (0%, 0%, 1%, 2%) by noon on February 15, 2019 OR the items that have been agreed to in principle and the wage offer will disappear. They were specific that the provider unions would be faced with the initial SAHO and employer rollback proposals and their proposed cuts to get to -3.5%.

Of course, the provider unions were extremely provoked by SAHO’s response. The committees felt SAHO’s strong arm tactics were just like schoolyard bullying, such as ‘give me your lunch money or you will get beat up’. These tactics are not good faith bargaining. It seems SAHO and the employer are not truly trying to reach a collective agreement. SAHO’s response is not moving the parties closer together. In fact, their response is moving negotiations backwards to the place we were over a year ago.

back to bargainingYour CUPE 5430 bargaining committee with be joining with our coalition partners, SGEU and SEIU-West, will resume bargaining with SAHO this Friday, February 8 in Saskatoon. Show your support and wear CUPE in the workplace, and stay tuned for updates.
