Do you work in the following classifications: Engineering Technologist, Electronics Technician, 2nd Class Chief Engineer, 3rd Class Engineer, 3rd Class Power Engineer or 4th Class Power Engineer? 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 October 16, 2018. These documents would have to be returned to the out of scope supervisor by November 20, 2018.

Please contact your region's office if you have any questions or concerns.

The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) has issued layoff notices to 33 workers at the Grenfell Pioneer home, many of whom are members of CUPE Local 5340. The Health Authority is relocating 20 residents of Grenfell Pioneer Home due to the serious nature of mould and asbestos found in the facility.

“There is a lot of uncertainty right now for our members and for the community of Grenfell,” said Sandra Seitz, president of CUPE Local 5430. “The future of the facility in Grenfell is up in the air, as is the job security of many members. This could have been avoided if the Saskatchewan government adequately maintained our health care facilities.”

Dear Health Care Member:

We hope all of you had an enjoyable summer and were able to spend some time relaxing and enjoying the warm weather with family and friends.

All of the health provider unions consulted with their membership over the summer. Your SGEU, CUPE and SEIU-West bargaining committees were ready to get back to negotiations with SAHO. We spent a day at the bargaining table in Regina on September 12, with the focus on reaching a fair and reasonable contract for our members.

We informed SAHO that our members stand firmly behind the joint coalition bargaining committee. This is the sentiment we heard overwhelmingly from you at our recent meetings across the province, where we reported on the state of negotiations and asked for direction from our members. Thank you to all those who were able to attend these meetings or connected with us in other ways to express your opinions.

Please be advised that CUPE 5430’s Region 2 Office is moving to 215-16th Street West in Prince Albert effective September 11, 2018. The phone and fax numbers and e-mail address will remain the same.

On August 23, 2018 the Saskatchewan Health Authority met with CUPE and SGEU representatives to discuss the employer’s ongoing plan to transfer the Roy Romanow Provincial Lab workers into the Saskatchewan Health Authority.

In our meetings with the employer, they announced their intent to negotiate the transition of in-scope SGEU members into the CUPE bargaining unit within the Saskatchewan Health Authority.

labour day

 

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

The Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) has recently announced that it is relocating residents of Grenfell Pioneer Home due to the serious nature of mould found in numerous areas of the facility. The Saskatchewan Health Authority hired Pinchin Limited to conduct a thorough investigation of the building in which they found not only mould but asbestos.

This not only raises concerns about the health and safety of the 21 residents but also the health and safety of our 65 members working at the facility.

CUPE is currently working with our members and the employer to ensure that all safety precautions are being adhered to. CUPE has informed our members of their lawful right to refuse unsafe work under The Saskatchewan Employment Act.
