Dear Valued Member:
Your bargaining committee had its first meeting with SAHO, the bargaining agent of the employer, on May 19, 2023.
The first meeting was to discuss process and to set dates to exchange proposal packages.
Discussions were respectful and collaborative.
Our hope was to begin bargaining immediately, but the employer was not ready to bargain yet.
The earliest dates we were able to confirm for presenting and exchanging proposal packages are on September 19, 20, and 21, 2023 in Regina.
Your bargaining committee is not going to be taking the summer off.
Stayed tuned for our summer outreach plans and the launch of our bargaining support T-shirt campaign. We are also working with other health care stakeholders to plan a rally on September 23.
Heading into bargaining your support is more important than ever. Together, we will fight for a fair deal, with better wages, better working conditions, and better language.
Your Bargaining Committee:
Bashir Jalloh (President), Linda Renkas (Vice-President), Nancy Black (Recording Secretary), Rhonda Osipoff (Treasurer), Linda Vancuren (R1), Sharon Paul (R2), Janell Hubbard (R3), Adrienne Gardiner (R4), Corinne Sopel (R5), Lori Sutherland (staff), Debbie Mihial (staff), Justin Mercier (staff)
