Offers presented to two groups as Crown strike reaches day six

Unifor members picketing in front of a SaskTel/SaskPower building near Regina’s airport on Wednesday, October 9th.

As another day dawns on the Saskatchewan Crown strike, we know two groups received an offer on Wednesday.

Both DirectWest and the Water Security Agency were at the bargaining table with a proposal apparently presented.

Both sides have expressed no interest bargaining through the media, so no details were released.

Unifor members are seeking more than the provincial offer of five percent over five years.

On Wednesday Unifor members blocked out managers from entering a building near Regina’s airport.

An affiliate of 620 CKRM’s in Saskatoon told us that picketers there were also asking for I.D from people at a SaskTel building that is shared with another business not involved in the dispute.

Over 4,400 unionized crown employees began striking on Friday, after a work to rule campaign the previous four days.

Most have said they cannot go longer than three weeks on the 300 dollar a week strike pay they are receiving from Unifor.
