SIAST bargaining units serve strike notices

November 10, 2010

The Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology received notice yesterday from its 2 bargaining units that they are prepared to take job action as early as next week. The school's unionized employees are represented by 2 bargaining units -- Academic and Professional Services -- of the Saskatchewan Government and General Employees Union. Earlier this week, the units submitted final offers, which SIAST rejected. When the institution turned down the offers, the bargaining units notified the conciliator that talks had ended. SIAST has begun implementing contingency plans. SIAST News Release
