2011 Year in Review

What a year it’s been for SEIU-West members!

As in any year, there are good moments and not so good moments, but overall our members are among the most active and unique in Saskatchewan.

So we’re taking this opportunity to do a month by month 2011 year in review.

  • Shop Steward Level 2 training was held across the province.
