Scope and content

This pdf with text and images describes the experience of Gail Lasiuk during the pandemic in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan working at the Health Sciences Supply Center (HSSC) at the University of Saskatchewan and as a member of the CUPE 1975 union. Dated September 2020. Gail Lasiuk's story reads "I am a 65 year old woman. I will continue to draw a pay cheque as long as I can, because like many Canadian workers, I cannot afford to retire. I am very grateful that I have a union looking out for me. I know that many Canadian women do not have unions. I know firsthand, that we need better income protections, work and training opportunities, higher wages, guaranteed sick days and other benefits for working people."
