Saskatchewan’s largest union (The Canadian Union of Public Employees) will kick off its annual convention in Saskatoon on Wednesday.
The event, which will run until Friday, will see 250 delegates from across Saskatchewan in attendance to set the direction and determine the priorities for the year.
New CUPE national president Mark Hancock will address the group as will Saskatchewan Federation of Labour president Larry Hubich and Saskatchewan NDP leader Cam Broten.
There will also be a panel discussion on privatization, addressing the record of the Saskatchewan Party government, and the experiences Alberta has had with P3 schools.
President Tom Graham says the convention comes at a time when CUPE members and all Saskatchewan people face important choices about their jobs and the future of the public services we all depend on.
CUPE represents 30-thousand workers in Saskatchewan
