Bargaining Update - March 28, 2019

posted Mar 28, 2019, 9:50 AM by Gail Sawatzky   [ updated Mar 28, 2019, 9:53 AM ]

Thank you for your strong showing of support and solidarity on March 19.  We wore our Unifor t-shirts in the workplace; held placards and took pictures.  Solidarity goes hand-in-hand with strength at the bargaining table.

We have met with the employer on March 18 and 27. We have yet to make any real progress on non monetary proposals with the employer.  We continue to advance the proposals you have put forward to the bargaining committee.  We have asked repeatedly for the wage package however have yet to receive it.  We meet again on April 30th.  

We are asking to be treated fairly and compensated fairly.  All of you have contributed to the success of SecurTek through your hard work and dedication and there is no fairness in return.

There has been much speculation with regards to the declaration of impasse at the SaskTel bargaining table.  Should you have questions on how that potentially may impact you please contact the Local 1-S union office at 306-586-7271

Bargaining Update February 15, 2019

posted Feb 18, 2019, 6:30 PM by Gail Sawatzky   [ updated Feb 22, 2019, 1:10 PM ]

Your bargaining committee met with the company on February 12th.  We met on neutral ground utilizing meeting space in the SaskPower building to begin detailed discussions of the exchanged proposals.

Both sides had an opportunity to ask questions and get a better understanding of the other sides position and the reasons for each proposal.

We will review the language from the company in order to respond at our next meeting scheduled for March 18th.  At that time, we will continue to discussion and negotiations.

Thank you for your support,
In solidarity,

Bargaining Update - July 13, 2018

As you are aware our SecurTek Collective Agreement will expire March 19, 2019.  The original expiry date was March 19, 2017 and has been extended twice to maintain existing language and benefits with no 3.5% rollback of wages and benefits.

Our plan is to go into full negotiations with the company as there are potential strategic advantages.
The first part of the process will be to gather new proposals from you the members to determine priorities as we enter bargaining.

The second part will be a screening caucus in the fall to review all proposals and put together a final list of proposals to be exchanged with the company.

The last part will be the exchange of proposals and the beginning of bargaining with SecurTek.

Proposal gathering will be open from July 16, 2018 to September 14, 2018.  The forms will be available on our Local 1-S website.  Please fully complete the forms and ensure they are submitted on time.  If you have any questions, please contact the local office – 306-586-7271 or

Bargaining Update - SecurTek – January 25, 2018

posted Jan 28, 2018, 5:13 PM by Gail Sawatzky   [ updated Jan 28, 2018, 5:13 PM ]

As per the Saskatchewan Employment Act, notice to begin bargaining must be served by either the employer or the Union 60 days prior to the expiration of the Collective Agreement.  As you’ll recall, the SecurTek Collective was extended for 1 year from March 19, 2017.  This meant the new expiration date would be March 19, 2018.

Notice to bargain for the March 19, 2018 contract needed to be given by January 18, 2018.  This notice was not given by either party which extends the contract by another year.  The new expiry date for the SecurTek Collective Agreement will be March 19, 2019.  All benefits and language in the Collective Agreement will remain as is.
