On April 17, 2020, the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses signed a Letter of Agreement with the Saskatchewan Health Authority and other healthcare unions. The LOU is a joint effort to best meet the healthcare needs of Saskatchewan during the COVID-19 pandemic, by ensuring we have the necessary resources in place to respond to all levels of severity. This LOU expired on August 8, 2021, after the Government of Saskatchewan removed the State of Emergency on July 11, 2021.
