Join the fightback! 

Unifor estimates that nearly 1,000 SaskTel jobs have been contracted out to out-of-province companies or firms overseas. Most contracting out has happened through attrition (retirements). That job opening is then contracted out to firms with substandard wages. In the race to be the lowest bidder, these for-profit firms are cutting corners on everything from training to caseload. It is another union job lost in Saskatchewan and it is privatization.

You get what you pay for 

When customers are forced to deal with low-bid contractors, service suers. SaskTel customers deserve trained professionals who know our products and our plans. You don't deserve "McService" from over-worked, under-trained workers who are not familiar with our unique public telco provider. 

Take action today 

We're building a campaign to bargain stronger anti-contracting out language in the collective agreement, but we need your help.

Reproductive Justice Now!

Reproductive rights are fragile and we must work together to protect and expand access to sexual and reproductive health care.

Unifor National - Health & Safety Issues: Heat Stress

Heat stress is an environmental and occupational hazard, resulting from physical activity in hot or humid environments capturing a spectrum of heat-related illnesses, including heat stroke, which can lead to death. Just like you can’t let a car engine overheat or it shuts down, you don’t want your body to get too hot. Working in the heat puts stress on our body’s cooling system. High temperatures and high humidity, stress the body’s ability to cool itself and heat illness can become a deadly concern.

Women's Advocate 

A Women’s Advocate is a specially trained workplace representative who assists women with concerns such as workplace harassment, intimate violence and abuse. The Women’s Advocate is not a counsellor but rather provides support for women accessing community and workplace resources.

These specially-trained, easy to contact workplace representatives have been instrumental in creating healthier workplaces and safer communities. We work closely with management ensuring strong cooperation to achieve this goal.

One of the best tools the union has to prevent violence against women and workplace harassment is the Women’s Advocate program.

Protect good jobs in telecommunications, right here in Canada.

Did you know that telecommunications companies in Canada routinely use call centers, technical support, and engineers based overseas? Despite the fact that major Canadian telecoms benefit from publicly-funded subsidies and grants from federal and provincial governments, they keep sending good jobs out of the country where workers face poor working conditions.

Generations of telecom workers in Canada built the infrastructure that connects our communities. Any public investment should support the next generation of telecom.

Please add your name to the petition, and stand up for good jobs in the telecom sector. For more information visit Our Telecoms, Our Jobs.

Take Action to Fix Employment Insurance 

At the start of COVID, the federal government relaxed EI eligibility to improve access to emergency support for those most in need. Without these supports, it would have been much worse for workers and their families due to the COVID closures, lockdowns and layoffs.

Shamefully, the federal government allowed these rules to expire without implementing the permanent changes needed to make EI work for workers.

Last fall, union activists met with MPs to lobby for EI changes in this federal budget. Workers can’t wait for EI to be fixed.

Unifor is calling for immediate changes that improve accessibility, raise benefit levels, eliminate unfair penalties, and improve administration of an extremely outdated program.  

The federal budget will be tabled in the very near future. Let's push the government to do the right thing and make permanent EI reforms that work for workers.

We encourage you to take action. Here’s how you can participate:
