SGEU expresses concern, calls for greater transparency with Cumberland, Parkland merger


The Saskatchewan Government Employees Union (SGEU), which represents workers at Cumberland College and Parkland College, is calling for more transparency and collaboration as the colleges move forward with their merger. In a statement, SGEU outlined member concerns such as job loss; changes to workloads; and the impact the merger may have on students, business, and communities. SGEU President Tracey Sauer said that “the two colleges’ board of governors has not been forthcoming with evidence to show a merger is in the best interests of the students, staff, businesses, residents, and communities in the area.” Sauer called for more transparent and open evidence regarding the decision as well as a detailed plan for the merged college.
