The USFA represents approximately 1,000 faculty members including professors, librarians, archivists, and extension specialists at Saskatchewan’s largest university.
I am very pleased that the Faculty Association has chosen to join the House of Labour. Their decision to join the SFL reinforces that in this day and age, workers need unions, and unions need strong central organizations to advocate on their behalf.
These additional members at the University of Saskatchewan will make a fantastic addition to the diverse make-up of the SFL. Our Federation is an organization that truly reflects the wide cross-section of workers in virtually all occupations throughout the province.
The Saskatchewan Federation of Labour Executive Council will finalize the affiliation at their meeting next week in Regina.
The SFL now represents nearly 95,000 unionized workers from 37 affiliated unions in Saskatchewan.
