Member Communique: Update from meeting with SAHO

March 9, 2017

Dear CUPE Health Care Member:

CUPE, SEIU, and SGEU met with SAHO on March 7 to discuss bargaining logistics (meeting frequency, locations, venues, etc.), order of proceedings (common table versus individual union tables), and communication protocols. No bargaining proposals were exchanged at this meeting.

Unfortunately, these preliminary discussions were sidelined when the health provider unions were informed by SAHO about two hours into our meeting that Saskatchewan’s Minister of Finance would be sending a letter to the heads of all public sector unions.

Minister Kevin Doherty’s letter stated that Premier Wall would be asking Cabinet Ministers and MLAs to reduce their salaries by 3.5 per cent starting in 2017 to 2018. Staff in the Premier’s office and Ministers’ office would be required to take nine unpaid days off a year.

Member Communique: Collective Bargaining Update

 February 22, 2017

Dear CUPE Health Care Member:

The CUPE-SAHO collective agreement expires on March 31, 2017.

Since December 2016, CUPE has been meeting regularly with our health provider coalition partners – SEIU and SGEU – to coordinate our approach to the upcoming round of bargaining with SAHO.

CUPE, SEIU, and SGEU had preliminary meetings with SAHO on January 13 and January 24, 2017 to discuss logistical issues for the upcoming round of bargaining in light of the provincial government’s decision to replace the existing 12 health regions with one single provincial health authority (PHA).

Member Communique: Health Care Restructuring Update

 February 21, 2017

Dear CUPE Health Care Member:

Last month, we reported on the Government of Saskatchewan’s plans to replace the current 12 health regions with one single provincial health authority (PHA) in the fall of 2017.

Since this announcement, CUPE has attempted to get more details from the Ministry of Health and SAHO on how the move to the single PHA will affect our bargaining units and current union representation. These questions were put to the Ministry of Health at a meeting held with CUPE, SEIU, and SGEU on January 23, 2017 and at meetings with SAHO on January 13 and 24, 2017. To date, the Ministry and SAHO have provided no details, stating that they are in the early stages and no firm decisions have been made yet.
