Be Fair to Those Who Care - support Saskatchewan's health care workers

LabourStart.


I wrote to many of you about this a few days ago -- and if you've supported these workers, thanks very much! Please pass this message on.

But many of you will be seeing this message for the very first time. Please read on... these workers deserve our solidarity.

Thank you!


SEIU West is asking us all to send some solidarity to Saskatchewan healthcare workers. Like most healthcare workers across the country they are being asked to do more with less for more patients in an increasingly dangerous workplace. All for low pay. To the point where workers are leaving healthcare for safer, better-paid jobs in other sectors.

The Saskatchewan government must create a health care environment that values the work they do in these difficult working conditions and that means providing wages that retain and recruit workers to the health care team. Better wages will attract more staff resulting in shorter wait times and safe care – it’s a win for us all.

Whether you live in SK or not, the workers are asking you to support their Be Fair to Those Who Care campaign by sending the... provincial government a message demanding that it create a health care environment that values the work they do in these difficult working conditions, and that means providing wages that retain and recruit the health care team. Better wages will attract more staff resulting in shorter wait times and safe care – it’s a win for us all.

Thanks. And as always, please pass this along.
