SGEU launches campaign to speak out for fair workplaces

Unions have made life better for all workers and their families. So, if government waters down laws that protect workers, and muzzles unions - who will be left to speak out for workplace rights? 
 

Regina (3 Aug. 2011) - The Saskatchewan Government and General Employees' Union (SGEU/NUPGE) is asking its members and the public to speak out for fair workplaces and a strong Saskatchewan.  Activists with SGEU/NUPGE are talking to co-workers, friends, family and neighbours about the value of good labour laws that protect all Saskatchewan working families.

The Saskatchewan government is reviewing all of its labour legislation this summer, and is planning to make changes this fall. Some of the ideas being considered would undermine the union's ability to stand up for its members, and could erase important rights that all workers have counted on for decades.

This ad reminds everyone of the critical role unions have played in improving worker rights such as the 40-hour work week, equal pay and sick leave protections.
