CUPE: Critical shortage of Radiological Technologists risks patient care

REGINA: In light of ongoing short-staffing, unfilled vacancies and upcoming leaves among medical radiation technologists and nuclear medicine technologists, CUPE is calling for an immediate intervention from the Minister of Health to ensure staffing can be secured to avoid disruptions to diagnostic care.

“For over a decade, we have been sounding the alarm on behalf of our members that provide a vital service in the continuum of care,” said Bashir Jalloh, president of CUPE 5430 and a nuclear medicine technologist. “The government sat on their hands instead of addressing the issue. Now, as waitlists grow, we are at risk of more disruptions of services and communities on bypass for critical care at a time when wait lists are as long as ever.”

The CUPE 5430 executive was saddened to hear about Eden Care Communities’ decision to cease all operations of Regina Lutheran Home, resulting in a full closure of the facility and displacement of residents by April 11, 2024.

We are disappointed to hear that the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) has no intention of taking over operations of Regina Lutheran Home. This will have a huge impact on residents, families, and our members who are affected by this closure.

As this process continues, our primary goal will be to stand up for our members, their jobs, and their rights under the collective agreement regarding layoff procedures.

On that front, representatives from CUPE 5430, Linda Renkas, Rhonda Osipoff, and Janell Hubbard, met with management at Eden Care Communities and the SHA on October 4 to discuss the closure of Regina Lutheran Home.
