Member Communique: Security Service Review

On February 4, 2019 the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) released the final report from their province-wide security review. The report outlines 27 recommendations for a centrally-managed security services program.

The review was conducted by external consultant Tony Weeks from BigLeap Consultation and Advisory Services.

CUPE wants to acknowledge the vital role security service members play in keeping patients and our co-workers safe.

On January 24, 2019, CUPE Local 5430 organized a standing room only town hall meeting in Grenfell to talk about the closure of Grenfell Pioneer Home and the impact the loss of jobs and residents has had on the community. Speakers included NDP MLA and health critic Vicki Mowat, NDP seniors’ critic Danielle Chartier, CUPE 5430 President Sandra Seitz and community residents Lois Warner and Joyce Maier. The event was emceed by Region 3 General Vice President Scott McDonald.

Speaking on behalf of CUPE, Seitz spoke eloquently about the need to invest in long-term care.

CUPE Local 5430 members  Workload Concerns

On January 18, 2019 representatives from CUPE Local 5430 met with Greg Ottenbreit, Yorkton MLA and Minister for Rural and Remote Health to discuss our concerns with workload and chronic under-staffing.

The delegation submitted close to 1,500 postcards calling for the province to address workload by:

  • Ensuring staff are replaced when sick or on leave;
  • Improving shift schedules to reduce on-call work;
  • Increasing funding for frontline staff;
  • Having meaningful discussion with health care unions about staff, resources, recruitment, and retention (especially in rural Saskatchewan).

These documents would have to be returned to the out of scope supervisor by January 15, 2019.

Dear Health Care Member:

Your SEIU-West, CUPE, and SGEU health provider bargaining committees met with SAHO in Regina on November 27 and 28, 2018 to resume bargaining.
With everyone’s assistance, the Coalition has made considerable progress over the course of bargaining, and the only outstanding issue that remains is wages.

During the last hour of bargaining, the employer presented the Coalition bargaining committee with a “final” offer that included a monetary proposal well below the cost of living. We know from past rounds of bargaining that a “final” offer is not actually the end of bargaining, and we are under no obligation to vote on the offer.

Do you work in the following classifications: Equipment Operator-Groundskeeper, Groundskeeping Supervisor, Planning CoordinatorHead Groundskeeper or Groundskeeper?

You should know that the Joint Job Evaluation Maintenance Committee has initiated a provincial review for those job descriptions. You should expect to have the Employer give you the Provincial Review Process Form, the Provincial Job Fact Sheet and Provincial Review Instructions by November 23, 2018. These documents would have to be returned to the out of scope supervisor by December 27, 2018.

CUPE National Sector Conference in Ottawa was enlightened today by brother Sid Hall on Workload and how it can affect the care we are to provide our deserving residents/patients/clients. 

Thank you Brother Sid
