December 18, 2017

Today NDP leadership candidate Trent Wotherspoon welcomed the endorsement of Unifor Local 649.

“Trent has shown that he has what it takes to lead the NDP to win in 2020, and he has the best plan to protect and strengthen our Crowns,” said Unifor Local 649 president Christy Best. “Our Crowns were built by and for Saskatchewan people, and Trent’s plan to lock down our Crowns with the strongest legal protections possible  will ensure they’re around for generations to serve the public.”

“I’m honoured and thrilled to earn the endorsement of Unifor Local 649,” said Wotherspoon. “These women and men work hard to provide for Saskatchewan, and I've witnessed first-hand hand their willingness to rally and fight for our Crowns. We owe it to them and to all Saskatchewan people to save, protect, and expand our Crowns, to serve us today and future generations. To do so, we must win in 2020 - and by working together, we'll do just that."

Unifor Local 649 represents SaskEnergy, SaskPower and Westmoreland employees throughout Saskatchewan.
