The Saskatchewan Union of Nurses (SUN) is currently seeking clarification on this new policy directive and SUN will communicate with members when more specific information is available.
In the meantime, SUN will need to look at matters on a case-by-case basis until specific information regarding the application of the new policy directive has been provided by the SHA.
Members who have questions or concerns are asked to contact their Local Presidents or SUN Duty Roster at 1-800-667-7060 (Regina)/1-800-667-3294 (Saskatoon).
