Supreme Court of Canada upholds Saskatchewan Union of Nurses' arguments and strikes down bad law

On January 30, 2015 the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that the province of Saskatchewan's Public Sector Essential Services Act (PSESA) is unconstitutional. Sections of the PSESA removed the right to strike from registered nurses and other "essential" workers.

The Saskatchewan Union of Nurses launched a legal challenge to this legislation in September 2008 and has been committed to this battle for their members and all working people in Canada.
