Saskatchewan Government Employees Union Collective Agreement

Membership of the SGEU had a strike mandate in effect since the summer of 2018. Last month, about 5,000 Crown Group employees went on a 17-day strike under the Unifor banner. An interim agreement was reached on 20 October. “This interim agreement will undoubtedly place a huge burden on registered nurses and provide them with the stability and security they desperately need in the face of a global pandemic.” The province and the Saskatchewan General Employees Union (SGEU) have agreed on a new collective agreement that provides for a seven per cent increase over six months. The new agreement provides for wage increases of zero per cent, zero per cent, one per cent, two per cent (combination of pension and general wage increase), two per cent and two per cent over a six-year period. It will run from October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2022. “We are pleased that a majority of the members voted in favour of this interim agreement,” said Lori Bossaer, Chair of the GSP Negotiating Committee. Our priority was to reach an agreement that was good for the public servants and the people we serve, the citizens of Saskatchewan. Members of the GSM bargaining committee will now work with the province to conclude the new collective agreement.

It expires on September 30, 2022. Both sides have been at the negotiating table since the previous agreement expired in October 2016. Unions representing tens of thousands of Saskatchewan health care workers have agreed to new interim collective agreements. READ MORE: The previous GSM strike cost Sask.

Details of the various agreements will be published at a later date. The agreement covers approximately 11,000 SGEU members who work as transport and equipment officers, prison officers, park officers, conservation officers, social workers and many other public sectors. The SGEU held ratification votes across the province between October 7 and November 6. According to the union, nearly 70 per cent of the members voted in favour of ratification. “I welcome the commitment and cooperation between the two parties to work on a new collective agreement,” said Ken Cheveldayoff, Minister responsible for the Public Service Commission.
