National Nursing Week is an opportunity to recognize the incredible work and dedication of all members of the nursing team – including licenced practical nurses and continuing care assistants.
CUPE licensed practical nurses and continuing care assistants are key members of the nursing team. It is an important time to recognize the tremendous work CUPE members do every day to deliver high quality patient care. CUPE strongly supports multidisciplinary teamwork and full utilization of all team members’ skills and training.
Saskatchewan’s health care system depends on the commitment and work of these workers. Yet this province is facing a crisis in recruiting and retaining workers. Our government must strengthen public health care through higher staffing levels and sustainable workloads, better wages and benefits, and a healthier and safer workplace.
This week, CUPE 5430 pays tribute to all members of the nursing team. We thank you for all your hard work and dedication. Happy Nursing Week! Together we will continue to campaign for quality public health care for all!
