Saskatchewan government and SGEU reach tentative agreement

by HR Law Canada

The Government of Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Government and General Employees’ Union (SGEU) have reached a tentative agreement, pending a ratification vote by union members in the coming weeks. This agreement will cover the period from October 1, 2022, to September 30, 2025.

Minister Responsible for the Public Service Commission, Dustin Duncan, expressed satisfaction with the negotiation process. “I am pleased with both parties’ commitment and co-operation in working to reach a tentative agreement,” Duncan said. “The best agreements are reached at the bargaining table, and this agreement is good for both public service employees and the people of Saskatchewan.”

SGEU, which represents approximately 11,000 employees from various government ministries, has been in negotiations since the previous agreement expired in September 2022.

The ratification vote by SGEU members is expected to take place over the next few weeks, determining the final approval of the agreement.
