Celebrating National Aboriginal Day, June 21

dsc 6529cropNational Aboriginal Day is time to celebrate the vibrant and unique cultures of Indigenous peoples, as First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities graciously share their ceremonies, customs and heritage with us all.

It is also a time for us to recommit ourselves to promoting truth and reconciliation. Canadians must fully and openly recognize the historical and ongoing harm Canada has inflicted through its failed policies and laws to assimilate Indigenous peoples. We must respect the rights of Indigenous peoples to their traditional and unceded territories, and we must acknowledge their histories on these lands – histories that date back far beyond 150 years.

CUPE urges SAHO to reconsider their regressive package of concessions

Bargaining Communique 4 Photo.jpgJune 15, 2017
Dear CUPE Health Care Member:

Your CUPE Bargaining Committee resumed collective bargaining with SAHO June 13-14, 2017.

Once again, CUPE strongly urged SAHO to reconsider the sweeping list of concessions they have tabled in this round of bargaining. Your Bargaining Committee told the employer that SAHO’s package is not respectful of our members and that it would take us backwards, not forward.

At the previous bargaining session, CUPE questioned why SAHO was putting forward these takeaways and asked how these proposals would impact employee morale, recruitment, and retention efforts. We are still waiting for the answers to these questions. SAHO indicated that they will only answer questions concerning their monetary concessions and what they see as “common” proposals at the common table with all three provider unions present.
