Establish an Ad-Hoc Committee to research funding options for Executive Board positions.  The Committee shall present recommendation(s) by April 30, 2019 to the Executive Board.  The Committee is to consist of three (3) members of the Executive Board, including the Secretary-Treasurer and three (3) non-executive members appointed by the Executive Board.

The Committee’s function shall be to:

  • Research funding strategies in union locals of similar size
  • Determine if positions should be compensated
  • Determine which positions should be compensated
  • Determine the amount of compensation (e.g. benefits, pension, wage)
  • Report on the financial implications of the recommendation

We do not know what the actual time commitment would be.  The member shall be granted leave with pay and without loss of seniority for periods of time spent working on the Committee.  The member should possess the skills needed to work within committee environments where consensus decisions need to be made.

The deadline has been extended until December 14, 2018.  Please notify our office at cupe59@sasktel.net, if you are interested in being a member on the Executive Compensation Committee.  Please include the following information in your email:

Bargaining Survey- PDF and Survey Link

To all CUPE 59 Members,

On December 31st, 2018 our existing Collective Bargaining Agreement will expire. In the New Year, your Executive Board will begin the bargaining process with the Employer to work towards a fair contract. In anticipation of this new round of bargaining, we have prepared a quick 5-10 minute bargaining survey that we would like you complete. We would like to use this information to help capture the issues that matter most to you, the membership. We will use this information as a baseline to help formulate our bargaining priorities.  All submissions are kept confidential.  In early 2019 we will share aggregate response results with the Membership.

The survey can be filled out online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2019bargaining

For those that don’t have access to a computer, hard copies can be submitted through internal mail (CUPE 59 office #301-125 5th Avenue North) or through your Area Representative.

In Solidarity,

Executive Committee
