Saskatoon:  The Canadian Union of Public Employees will release a new report on Wednesday that examines the SaskParty government’s proposed legislative changes to  “rebalance” the labour environment in the province.

The SaskParty introduced the Public Services Essential Services Act (Bill 5) and an Act to Amend the Trade Union Act (Bill 6) in December, less than a month after being sworn into office.

Tilt: How The SaskParty Plans To Shift The Scales In Favour of Employers analyzes the impact the proposed legislation will have on collective bargaining and labour rights in Saskatchewan. The report also looks at how the SaskParty’s proposed essential services legislation compares to other provinces.

The 32-page report will be released at a news conference in Saskatoon on Wednesday.

Date: Wednesday, February 13, 2008
Time: 10:30 a.m.
Location: CUPE office, 250 Cardinal Crescent
Speaker: Tom Graham, President CUPE Saskatchewan
