Bargaining Update – October 16, 2019

posted Oct 16, 2019, 3:47 PM by Diane Shanner

Dear Unifor members,

Today, after 13 days on strike, we have setup a bargaining committee meeting with SaskTel for tomorrow at 9:00 a.m. to work through the outstanding non-monetary issues.  Another crown will also be meeting at 9:00 a.m.  The discussions at these 2 tables will formulate a framework for agreements at the other crown tables.

The last thing is a huge thank you to everyone. All of our committees have been doing an amazing job of organizing and scheduling.  Our lines have been strong.  There has been innovation to stop management, consultants and contractors from doing our work.  You have all stepped up and are doing the best job ever contributing to the strike.  Comments from the national reps about our organization, ability to move lines, moral and more are amazing to hear.

Thank you in advance for your continued support and please stay tuned for further updates.

In solidarity,


Your bargaining committee
