POWER IN UNITY
Unifor locals at all 7 Crown Corporations are having similar problems with their employers and unfortunately, it looks like everyone is moving towards impasse at the bargaining table. SecurTek has already obtained a strike mandate from their membership.
There will be extreme pressure on the government if all Unifor Crown corporations obtain strike mandates and there is the potential of strikes at all Crowns.
WHY DO THE TOP BRASS ALWAYS GET RAISES?
Senior executives at the Crown corporations always get big, fat increases, including the VP of SaskPower. Brian Ketcheson got a whopping $275,000 raise in 2018. The top brass at the Crown Corporations all make more than $500,000 per year.
Unifor workers are critical to the Crowns success. From delivering the country’s most inexpensive cellphone plans, to the power that runs our homes and businesses, Crown workers perform important work that touches the lives of virtually every person in Saskatchewan.
