Concessions for Regina’s Public School Workers are Rotten! Tell your elected trustee their deal bites!

Share this image!

What’s the issue? The Regina Public School Board’s trustees have given themselves a huge raise amounting to over $6,200 each this year alone, while instructing school workers at the bargaining table to take cuts to their benefits, pay and remove any requirement in the union contract for trustees to hear the concerns of workers.

Education support workers represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Locals 650 and 3766 only want a living wage, decent benefits, and a fair deal for a new contract so they can take care of the needs of our students, classrooms and school buildings. So far, trustees are only interested in ignoring support workers and endorsing their administration’s rotten demand for school workers to take concessions.

Parents are asked to join in expressing concern to their local trustee. Protect the support education workers provide students each and every school day. Tell your elected school board trustee: education workers are not worth less!

Ask your trustee:

  • Why should trustees get huge raises while school workers are told to take concessions?
  • How can we support our classrooms when school workers face hurtful cuts?

Stand Against the Cuts

The Sask Party government introduced an austerity 2017-18 budget which makes devastating cuts to public services, life harder and more expensive for Saskatchewan families, and puts people out of work. Yet, the government is giving a gift of tax breaks to already profitable corporations and the wealthy.

It’s the wrong priorities, and it’s bad for the economy.

Together, let’s Stand Against the Cuts.


Have your say about Saskatchewan’s health care restructuring plan

have-your-say-about-sk-health-care-restructuringSaskatchewan has gone through two health care mergers.

Both instances significantly disrupted the whole health system and distracted from the main purpose of the health care system: which is to provide quality care to patients and residents.

We need to make sure that the process in place considers quality of care, and protects our public health care system.

If you are concerned about the impact health reorganization, please write a letter today.


 

Where’s the funding?
Ed Funding

The Saskatchewan government is underfunding education. Over half of our school divisions are experiencing budget shortfalls, and it is our children who are feeling the impact.

A decrease in support staff will diminish the quality of education for all students. Students who require additional support will struggle in school if they don’t have access to the support.

Our government must invest adequate funding in education to allow school divisions access to the required resources, ensuring all Saskatchewan children’s rights to a quality, safe and healthy education.

Every student deserves access to the classroom support he or she needs.

If you are concerned about the impact the lack of education funding will have on your children and your community, make your voice heard.
