Bargaining reaches an impasse with SaskEnergy


REGINA, Aug. 16, 2019 /CNW/ - The bargaining committee for Unifor says talks with SaskEnergy have reached an impasse.

"The provincial government has mandated that the Crowns not offer any increase until 2021 and then only a 1 percent raise," said Unifor President Jerry Dias. "Our hard working members deserve better."

The Unifor bargaining committee has been meeting with the provincial mediator and SaskEnergy to try to get an agreement.

Unifor will now make preparations to seek a strike mandate from the membership.

"How can the Saskatchewan government justify giving itself a 2.3 percent increase this year but give nothing to front line workers?" asked Western Regional Director Joie Warnock.

Unifor is Canada's largest union in the private sector, representing 315,000 workers in every major area of the economy. The union advocates for all working people and their rights, fights for equality and social justice in Canada and abroad, and strives to create progressive change for a better future.
