5 things to know about paid sick leave in Saskatchewan

We read the fine print so you don’t have to! Welcome to “5 things to know about…” a series of blogs that cover major issues facing the working people of Saskatchewan.

WHAT: Paid Sick Leave

WHY IT MATTERS: This might come as a shock to you, but we’re in the middle of a global pandemic. So being able to take time off without being penalized is *pretty* important.

WHAT’S THE UPDATE: We’ve been pushing for this for a while and just a few weeks ago the government tabled a motion for mandatory paid sick leave in the province.

WHERE’S IT AT NOW: Well, the government won’t meet to vote on it again until the fall so now is a great time to let all of our political leaders, no matter what party they’re from, that WE WANT THIS.

HOW DO I DO THAT: Click this link and add your name. We’ll gather a big list of people and shout it from the rooftops before session is back in the fall. Wouldn’t hurt if you shared this either! And once we know more we’ll send you an email that gives you an update.
