Labour Relations Board Update!
The Saskatchewan Labour Relations Board has ruled that CUPE Local 1975 is allowed to withdraw from the Scope application, LRB File No. 120-12. This removes one of our legal barriers to taking job action.
The Union will be in front of the Essential Services Tribunal on March 26-28. CUPE’s position is that the University of Saskatchewan does not meet the criteria of an essential services employer under the Saskatchewan Employment Act. We will update you after the hearing concludes.
The parties are returning to the bargaining table on April 5th to further discuss the union’s pension proposal.
