SUN and SAHO Reach Tentative Bargaining Agreement

Released on November 23, 2020

The Saskatchewan Union of Nurses (SUN) and the Saskatchewan Association of Health Organizations (SAHO Inc.) are pleased to announce they have successfully reached a new tentative collective agreement.

This agreement marks another milestone for collective agreements achieved by unions which are all now operating within a single provincial health authority, as well as affiliate organizations.  Details of the new collective bargaining agreement will be shared pending ratification by SUN members and SAHO Inc.

“I am genuinely pleased to see a successful negotiated settlement with our largest health union providing further stability as our health system faces this pandemic,” Health Minister Paul Merriman said.  “Thank you to both SUN and SAHO Inc. for their collaborative efforts and dedication to achieving this tentative agreement.”

“I am certain registered nurses will welcome this good news – especially during these unprecedented times,” SUN President Tracy Zambory said.  “This tentative agreement will no doubt be a huge weight off the shoulders of registered nurses, providing them with much-needed stability and security in the face of a global pandemic.”

SUN represents more than 10,000 Registered Nurses (RNs), Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPNs), Registered Nurse (Nurse Practitioners) (RN(NP)s).  SUN’s primary role is protecting the individual and collective rights of registered nurses in Saskatchewan, ensuring its members can practice in a safe environment and provide patients with high-quality, safe care.
