Rotating health worker strike moves to Yorkton Wednesday

May 25, 2011 - 10:27am
Sixty Health Sciences Association of Saskatchewan (HSAS) workers walked off the job in Yorkton and Melville on Wednesday. HSAS says the strike will affect non-essential workers such as social workers, addictions counsellors, psychologists, dieticians and pharmacists.
This is HSAS's first rotating strike action this week. Last week, 120 HSAS members stayed off the job for three days in Regina. The week before that, HSAS members walked out in Swift Current, Saskatoon and Prince Albert.
The two sides haven't sat down together at the bargaining table since last week. HSAS is still calling for the Saskatchewan government to order binding arbitration to settle the contract dispute.
