Today on the show, Simon Enoch, Executive Director of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives in Saskatchewan. He’ll talk about the 5,000 workers for 6 Crown corporations and one Crown agency, who are all members of Unifor, who just walked off the job on Friday, October 4th. He’ll discuss why this strike is significant, and why Crown corporations matter not only for Saskatchewan, but the rest of the country. Unifor employees at SaskTel, SecureTek, DirectWest, SaskEnergy, SaskPower, SaskWater and the Water Security Agency all walked off the job over wage freezes in the first two years. All of the Crown contracts expired in March. Unifor National president Jerry Dias has become a frequent figure in Saskatchewan, flying in back in January for a Unifor rally to kick off negotiations. Dias has been at the table with the Crowns alongside the local presidents throughout bargaining. On September 30th, Crown workers instated a work-to-rule job action, banning overtime work. On Friday, October 4th, the workers walked off the job. At 4 PM on Friday, Unifor members rallied outside of the Saskatchewan Party convention in Regina.
