Saskatchewan Government and General Employees Union are demanding accountability.
Unionized and non-unionized workers showed up at the Legislature after the first full day of fall session, waving flags and calling out the government for a variety of issues.
One of them, said President Bob Bymoen, is related to budgetary and financial mismanagement.

“The time has come where the workers that they hire and asked to deliver these services need a raise.”
SGEU has been in negotiations with the government on a new collective bargaining agreement, having been without one since September 30th, 2018.
“Seniors CEO’s are getting $100,000 a year increases, but their employees are told ‘sorry, actually, as a matter of fact, we’d still like to take the minus 3.%%,'” said Bymoen. “And that’s not appropriate for the members that we represent.”
