URFA reaffiliates with the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour

URFA mem­bers to gain access to edu­ca­tion, train­ing, resources and being part of the broad­er labour move­ment in the province

REGI­NA, Sask. — The Exec­u­tive Com­mit­tee of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Regi­na Fac­ul­ty Asso­ci­a­tion (URFA) is pleased to announce that URFA has recent­ly reaf­fil­i­at­ed with the Saskatchewan Fed­er­a­tion of Labour (SFL).

Through this reaf­fil­i­a­tion, URFA offi­cial­ly rejoins a non-par­ti­san orga­ni­za­tion that rep­re­sents more than 100,000 union­ized mem­bers in every sec­tor through­out Saskatchewan. URFA’s pur­pose of pro­mot­ing sol­i­dar­i­ty with the labour move­ment aligns well with that of the SFL, which strives to improve work­ing con­di­tions for social and eco­nom­ic jus­tice for all. 

By rejoin­ing the SFL, URFA mem­bers will gain access to edu­ca­tion and train­ing pro­grams offered by the orga­ni­za­tion; have a rep­re­sen­ta­tive on SFL’s Exec­u­tive Coun­cil, and have access to SFL and affil­i­at­ed-orga­ni­za­tion resources for sup­port should job action or lock out occur. Togeth­er with oth­er affil­i­ates and mem­bers of the SFL, URFA is pleased to be part of the col­lec­tive voice of work­ers in the province.
