Tentative agreement negotiated between Sask. Cancer Agency, SAHO

A new tentative agreement has been negotiated between the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency and the Saskatchewan Association of Health Organizations.

The six-year contract covers about 700 cancer agency employees at two cancer clinics in Regina and Saskatoon including radiation therapists, pharmacists and registered nurses.

“I am sincerely pleased that an agreement has been reached, and that it recognizes how highly we value our cancer care professionals,” said Health Minister Paul Merriman in a government release on Monday. “They provide critical services to Saskatchewan residents, and their work has continued to be exceptional through the challenges of the pandemic.”

The agreement will be put to a ratification vote, after which further details will be released.
