News

On July 24, 2018 CUPE, SEIU-West, SGEU, SUN and HSAS were called to a meeting hosted by 3S Health. At that meeting the Unions were introduced to AIMS (Administrative Information Management System), a province-wide initiative to implement one business system to replace the 82 non-integrated systems currently in use.

The cost of this initiative is $167 million dollars. The Employer tells us that the objectives of AIMS are to reduce time and effort spent on administrative tasks, freeing more time to deliver patient care. They want to ensure that the right people and resources are available at the right time in the right place and the right amount. The Employer says they will redirect savings realized into patient care.

Members are eligible for the retirement presentation only once in their lifetime.
If you have any questions regarding this policy, please talk to one of the Facility Reps or call the Main Office at 306-757- 7925 and ask for a form to be emailed, faxed or mailed out to you.

Stronger Together

CUPE, SEIU- West and SGEU Health Providers are formalizing their commitment to working together. 

In April, CUPE Members committed to a Bargaining Association and movement to one Collective Agreement for all Healthcare providers when the tentative agreement was ratified. At the 2019 AGM, Members endorsed the Bargaining Association with a motion to move forward to develop a Bargaining Association with the Saskatchewan Government Employees Union (SGEU Health Providers) and Service Employees International Union (West) (SEIU – West) to be ratified by the CUPE Local 5430 Membership.

In September, we are holding Membership meetings in each region to share information about the Bargaining Association, answer questions and have the Association approved by the Membership.

PLEASE PARTICIPATE BY COMING OUT TO A MEETING IN YOUR REGION AND CASTING YOUR VOTE.

On August 12, 2019 the local received a phone call from a reporter asking for an opinion on a Request for Proposal (RFP) that had been issued by the Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA).

The SHA was seeking a proposal from vendors to provide a ‘hotline’ service that could be used for anonymously reporting to the organization when employees and others are suspected of violating SHA policies, codes of conduct, or legal requirements. The SHA had not communicated anything to the local about the RFP for the Whistleblower Hotline Service.

(Regina) A newly proposed Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) whistleblower hotline is being met with scepticism and criticism from Saskatchewan’s largest health care union.

“A whistleblower hotline is an unnecessary, wasteful use of tax dollars that duplicates existing complaint processes,” said Sandra Seitz, president of CUPE Local 5430.  “Health dollars would be better invested in front-line services, like adequate staffing levels, new infrastructure, and equipment.”

Sister Donna KrawetzThe CUPE Local 5430 Executive Board would thank Sister Donna Krawetz for her many years of dedicated service and activism as Vice President of the former
Local 4980 and CUPE Health Care Council and present Region 5 GVP and 5430 Executive Board member.

We wish you all the best and we will miss you Sister! Happy Retirement!

Saskatchewan’s three health sector provider unions - SEIU-West, CUPE Local 5430 and SGEU - held ratification votes on the contract offer of the Saskatchewan Association of Health Organizations (SAHO), representing health-sector employers. The unions shared the results with their members on April 18th.

Members of SEIU-West voted to reject the contract offer.

Members of CUPE Local 5430 voted to accept the contract offer.

Members of SGEU Health Providers voted to accept the contract offer.

The offer included a five year contract with pay increases of 0%, 0%, 1%, 2% and 2%.

The three unions are currently working together to determine next steps, including notifying SAHO.

THE RESULTS OF THE APRIL 17, 2019 CUPE LOCAL 5430 RATIFICATION VOTE ARE IN: 

65 per cent in favour 

Thank you to the CUPE Local 5430 membership for your support for our bargaining committee through this difficult round of negotiations.

SGEU and SEIU-West will be communicating with their members individually. We will be in touch with our coalition partners early next week, and will keep our members informed.
