Saskatchewan Federation of Labour cancels 2020 convention

Every autumn GSU members and officers look forward to attending the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour (SFL) convention. The convention location rotates between Saskatoon and Regina, providing GSU members throughout Saskatchewan access to topical speakers, presentations, debates, and the opportunity to meet new GSU delegates and catch up with old friends.

On June 16 the SFL’s Executive Council passed a motion to postpone the 2020 SFL Annual Convention until such time the Saskatchewan Medical Health Officer says it’s safe to hold large gatherings. As a result, there will be no SFL convention call sent out to GSU members this year.

“Safety of our members is a priority and I think the SFL’s decision was a wise one,” said GSU general secretary Hugh Wagner. “GSU is also closely monitoring the latest health advisories and conducting its meetings and union business accordingly.”
