SAHO/CUPE Bargaining Update February 9, 2024

09-Feb-2024

The SAHO Bargaining Committee met with CUPE December 11, 12 and 13 in Regina and January 30, 31 and February 1 in Saskatoon.

Over the course of these meetings the parties have engaged in meaningful and positive conversations to fully understand each other’s proposal packages. The parties have reached agreement on some matter and have begun to identify some of the issues related to the transition to a single health authority and/or where alignment with their union counterparts may require joint discussion.

SAHO remains committed to a fair and productive bargaining process with the intent to ensure all employees in over 300 classifications covered by the three (3) provider union collective agreements have equitable opportunities and maintain the internal equity that is a hallmark of previous agreements.   The SAHO Bargaining Committee continues to work towards common solutions to common issues while maintaining the integrity of the collective agreements.

Although it is recognized that many of the issues may have monetary implications, the long recognized practice at these tables is to have them negotiated at a common table.  

The parties are meeting regularly with the next dates scheduled for March 19, 20 and 21 in Regina.
