We had a very brief meeting on January 19th with SGI Management regarding the Saskatchewan Party’s request that Public Servants do their part to contain expenses.
It is acknowledged that we have a mutually agreed upon Collective Bargaining Agreement that does not expire until December 31, 2017.
So, it is status quo for now. No changes, no agreements to change anything at this time, further discussions will be taking place in the near future.
I ask that all members refer to the COPE 397 website ( www.cope397.ca) and the COPE 397 Facebook page where we will be providing updates. I also, encourage members to update their contact information on the website so that we can update via personal email and/or phone messages if needed.
We will be calling upon our members to attend meetings, town halls, days of action and events pertaining to this fiscal mess that the Government has put the Province of Saskatchewan in. Our Union is each and every member and together we will hold strong. All events will be on the website and Facebook Page. I encourage everyone to try and attend the meetings and events.
If you have any questions, please feel contact us.
