CUPE rallies for workers at University of Saskatchewan
Pensions, wages among key issues in contract talks
A crowd of more than 200 people waved flags, blew whistles and cheered during a noon hour rally at the University of Saskatchewan.
They were there to support workers represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), which is trying to secure a new contract.
CUPE officials say wages are important, but that the main focus is to maintain pensions and other benefits for workers.
Hancock says CUPE is having to fight to maintain adequate pensions for its members across Canada.
The two sides are set to meet again next month.
