Employees of the Saskatoon Community Training Residence (CTR) for women have been striking since June 14 in a struggle for wage parity. The 15 women earn only about 68 per cent of wages paid to workers at the men’s residences. Men’s training residences are staffed by the province, while the women’s residence is staffed by the Elizabeth Fry Society, a volunteer agency.
The E Fry society has made a final offer of seven per cent over the previous three years, an offer that does nothing to close the wage gap. The workers want the CTR to be rolled into the administration of Corrections and Public Safety, because the government will then be obliged to pay them the same as the men.
