CUPE Local 974 proudly announces our endorsement of Ryan Meili, in the NDP leadership race.
Ryan continues to demonstrate a strong commitment to equality, fairness and the needs of the working people in Saskatoon and the rest of Saskatchewan.
His concerns about universal health care and lack of a pharmacare plan are understood by our members who work in health care. Our local believes he will honour our contracts and offer fair deals at the bargaining table. Ryan has also shown support by attending many rallies against the wage rollback organized by a number of different unions.
Some of our 974 members had the opportunity to work with Ryan and saw how he can go the extra mile for people who cannot manage that extra mile on their own. Ryan's understanding of the social determinants in health care will create a welcome change in the governance of Saskatchewan.
It is for that reason we are endorsing Ryan Meili for the leadership of the NDP."
