Statement by NDP Leader Trent Wotherspoon on Labour Day

As we celebrate this Labour Day, we take time to reflect on the hard-fought victories won by the working women and men who built this province and we recommit to standing strong, shoulder to shoulder, with those who continue to labour at growing and strengthening our province.

New Democrats fight alongside Saskatchewan workers, against Sask. Party attacks -  from cuts to our classrooms, adult training programs, and supports for our most vulnerable to power rate increases and threats to sell off our crown corporations.
 
SaskTel was proudly built by generations of Saskatchewan workers. It provides far lower rates than other providers across Canada, ensures service to parts of the province that other providers ignore, creates thousands of good jobs, and it returns hundreds of millions of dollars back to Saskatchewan people to support programs and services like healthcare and education. New Democrats will fight to keep our world class company.
 
We will also continue to push for meaningful change that will improve the lives of all people across Saskatchewan, like stronger pensions so workers to retire securely, and a higher minimum wage that will help lift families and children out of poverty and put more money into the pockets of moms and dads to spend at local businesses. And we'll fight for improved workers' safety and rights, fair labour laws and the creation of good jobs.
 
And, as we look forward to the future, we know that it is only by working together that we will build a Saskatchewan where everyone benefits and no one is left behind.
