The government of Saskatchewan announced a three person advisory panel to develop recommendations for the reorganization of health care.

The advisory panel has a mandate to “recommend a structure with fewer regional health authorities to achieve administrative efficiencies as well as improvements to frontline service delivery.” The final report is due on October 31, 2016.

The CUPE Health Care Council has submitted a formal submission for the panel’s recommendations. You can read our full submission here.

CUPE is the largest health care union in Saskatchewan, representing over 13,000 members. We represent a wide range of health care employees in five major classification areas: clerical, technical, nursing, support, and plant operations.
