SGEU's Charter Challenge of Provisions in Part VII of the Saskatchewan Employment Act

In 2008, the Wall Government enacted the Public Service Essential Services Act. This legislation allowed a public sector employer to designate certain employees as essential thus preventing them from going on strike. Moreover, the Act did not provide a meaningful alternative to the right to strike. There was no process of interest arbitration to settle the terms and conditions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement through a hearing in front of an impartial board of arbitration.

SGEU filed a lawsuit. In the lawsuit, SGEU has filed its Statement of Claim and the Government has filed a Statement of Defense. The parties are proceeding through the formal steps of the litigation process. We expect the trial will take place in late 2023 or more likely 2024.
