uRegina brings in local cleaners to send admin staff back to their desks

November 14, 2007

Things are not all rosey on the picket lines at uSask and uRegina this week.  Hundreds of patients at the University of Saskatchewan have been told to expect delayed service due to lack of essential patient care services, normally provided by CUPE members. 2 clinics at uSask have been closed, and outpatient services have been suspended at another.  uRegina's president reports that outside help will be brought in starting today, to relieve the 100 administrative staff who have been filling in for 600 clerical, custodial and maintenance staff.
