November 4, 2010 - SFL Makes Submission to Minister on Minimum Wage Indexation
Earlier this morning, the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour made a submission to the Saskatchewan Minister responsible for Labour Relations and Workplace Safety, the Honourable Don Morgan, concerning the indexation of the provincial minimum wage. The SFL believes, as outlined in the submission to the Minister, that Saskatchewan’s minimum wage should first be raised to 75 percent of Canada’s Average Industrial Wage and then indexed to the provincial Consumer Price Index (CPI).
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.
