SEIU-West/SAHO Bargaining Update No. 3

SEIU West -

Your SEIU-West bargaining committee spent the week of May 23rd finalizing our union bargaining proposals. We also worked within our coalition group with SGEU and CUPE to finalize what we would see as coalition bargaining proposals. On May 25th, we met with our coalition partners, SAHO and the Employer representatives for CUPE, SGEU and SEIU-West health regions. The parties went over some ground rules prior to SAHO presenting all three unions with the SAHO/Employer proposal package.

Win of the Week! May 21-27

An SEIU-West member called our Member Resource Centre (MRC) and said they were missed for a position they had always wanted, because the member was away on vacation when the job was awarded. The manager had not used all the contact information provided on their online job posting site, and only contacted using one of the methods listed. SEIU-West contacted the manager and advised them they had not used all the contact information available to them. The member was awarded the position 2 weeks ago – congratulations to the whole SEIU-West team!
