The provincial government has passed Bill 40, and the Saskatchewan Government and General Employees Union is not happy about the change.
The bill allows the province to sell off up to 49-percent of a Crown corporation without requiring a referendum or election.
The SGEU argues selling off almost half of a crown such as SaskTel would weaken its ability to serve people in Saskatchewan.
The union says private shareholders would pocket the revenues which currently support public services, and could also pressure the Crown to prioritize profits over affordable service.
SGEU President Bob Bymoen says the province is “passing legislation to make sure that voters’ voices won’t be heard”.
