The Saskatchewan Federation of Labour is pushing for change on April 4th, wanting a leader that will listen to them.
SFL president Larry Hubich told a CUPE members convention that the Saskatchewan Party’s former Essential Services Act and outsorcing projects to out of country corporations shows the party isn’t listening to local workers.
Hubich says that includes conversations with labour union leaders as well. He says he hasn’t had a meeting with Premier Brad Wall in the 8 years he has been running the government.
He says important election issues will include health care privatization, the elimination of Crown corporations, and helping people with an increasing cost of living, along with supporting sustainable, environmentally friendly jobs, and to engage in dialogue with labour workers.
