SEIU-West Reaches Tentative Bargaining Agreement

Released on November 20, 2020

Service Employees’ International Union West (SEIU-West) and the Saskatchewan Association of Health Organizations (SAHO Inc.) have successfully reached a new tentative collective agreement.

This agreement will make a total of four collective agreements achieved by unions which, aside from affiliate organizations, are all now operating within a single provincial health authority.  Details of the new collective bargaining agreement will be shared pending ratification by SEIU-West members and SAHO Inc.

“I am very pleased to see the collaborative efforts made by both parties to reach an agreement providing stability in important health services during this challenging time of a pandemic,” Health Minister Paul Merriman said.  “SEIU-West members are highly valued members of our health care teams and are relied on by Saskatchewan residents and I would like to thank them for their dedication.”

SEIU-West represents 11,500 licensed practical nurses, special care aids, custodians, clerical staff and other professions working in acute care, long-term care, home care, primary health care, emergency medical, public and mental health services.
