Response to Parking Increase

We need your help to send a clear message to Saskatchewan Polytechnic management about the recent announcement of a $15.00 monthly increase to staff parking rates July 1, 2015 and their intention to increase it again next year by another $15.00. We are asking all our members to reply in a respectful manner to the email sent by Mark Fachada on Monday June 8th announcing this increase. The more individuals they hear from the clearer the message that this increase is completely unreasonable.

We will be meeting with senior management on June 22nd and this increase will be an agenda item.

In Solidarity,
Shawna North, PSBU Chairperson
