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.
Delegates at the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour (SFL) convention in Regina have concluded elections, and Larry Hubich will remain the president after no challenger was nominated. This will be Hubich’s seventh term as president in a row, each term being two years in duration.
The Saskatchewan Federation of Labour (SFL) is calling on the Saskatchewan Party government to take advantage of the new legislative session to rebalance this province’s labour legislation.
