Saskatchewan health care workers rallied in Regina today, demanding that the government get back to the bargaining table and address workplace concerns.

“We want a fair collective agreement for health care providers, one that recognizes and values our work in the workplace and one that will provide the citizens of Saskatchewan a better health care system,” said Gordon Campbell, president of the CUPE Health Care Council.

All across the province, health care workers have been sending a clear message that talks need to resume. Yesterday, CUPE health care workers held a rally in Weyburn, outside the office of MLA Dustin Duncan - while SEIU health care workers greeted Premier Brad Wall in Swift Current today.

Saskatchewan health care providers have been without a new contract for nearly two years and haven’t had a wage increase in nearly three years. The Saskatchewan Association of Health Organizations has refused to meet face-to-face with the health care provider unions since December 1.
