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).
Working people across Saskatchewan were concerned to learn that Canada Post intends to eliminate all home mail delivery within five years.
Every December 6th, since one tragic day in 1989 when 14 women were killed at the École Polytechnique in Montréal, Canadians come together both to remember those who were lost and to pledge action to end violence against women.
