October 3, 2011 - The SFL Mourns the Passing of Nancy Riche
Working people across Saskatchewan and across the county are mourning today the passing of Nancy Riche. Riche, a tireless advocate for the rights of working people and a determined activist for the rights of women, has left a proud legacy that people throughout the nation will commemorate.
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.
In response to the City of Saskatoon’s refusal to bargain in good faith, members of the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 615 have been forced to file an unfair labour practice application with the Saskatchewan Labour Relations Board (LRB).
