December 16, 2011 - SFL Supports Private Member's Bill to Establish Jimmy's Law
The SFL is offering its support for a private member’s bill, introduced into the Saskatchewan Legislature yesterday, that would establish Jimmy’s Law. Named for the late Jimmy Ray Wiebe, who was tragically murdered at work in Yorkton in the early morning hours of June 20th, 2011, the law would protect vulnerable people working late hours without a co-worker.
Working people across Saskatchewan were disappointed today to learn that, in spite of the warnings of academics and the concerns of thousands, the Government of Saskatchewan has forced Bill 85 through the Legislature.
Earlier this morning, the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal released an important decision recognizing that Canadian law has evolved to a point where a right to strike may be protected by the Constitution.
