SAHO/SGEU Bargaining Update Dec. 8, 2023

08-Dec-2023

SGEU and SAHO met in Saskatoon November 29 and 30, 2023.

The parties are at early stages of negotiations and the discussions were both positive and productive and in the spirit of understanding each other’s proposals. The parties have reached agreement on some preliminary items. This round of collective bargaining is especially important to the employers covered by the SAHO/SGEU collective agreement as it is both renewal and transition bargaining (shifting agreements from 12 regional health authority employers to one employer, the Saskatchewan Health Authority).

SAHO remains committed to a fair and productive bargaining process with the intent to ensure all employees in over 300 common classifications covered by three (3) collective agreements have equitable opportunities and maintain the internal equity that is a hallmark of previous agreements. Our proposal package maintains the integrity of the three provider unions while we seek common solutions to common issues. We have a long recognized practice at these tables of negotiating monetary and non-monetary issues at a single common table.

The next bargaining dates with SGEU are January 16 and 17, 2024 in Saskatoon.
