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).
The Saskatchewan Federation of Labour (SFL) is calling on the City of Saskatoon to stop wasting taxpayers’ money on anti-worker ads, and instead invest in better transit services.
For more than a century, people across the nation, from various backgrounds and traditions, from several generations, and representing a spectrum of occupations and professions, have gathered together on the first Monday in September to celebrate Labour Day.
