Northern Health Region Clamping Down On Sick Leave

Wednesday, April 28, 2010 at 12:50

 

 

A northern Saskatchewan health region is looking to cut costs.

 

The Keewatin Yatthe Regional Health Authority says it wants to reduce the amount of time its workers spend on sick leave or collecting overtime.

 

CEO Richard Petit says he will be asking managers to sit down with employees and figure out if there is something they can do to help workers who are constantly sick.

 

Petit explains workers who are always sick force the region to spend a lot on overtime.

 

He notes the provincial government wants health regions to save five per cent on sick time and 10 per cent on overtime.

 

Petit says Keewatin Yatthe will do its best to exceed those targets.

Nanatakapo Prepared To Give Mediation Another Try

Tuesday, April 27, 2010 at 15:09

 

 

A northern Saskatchewan man says he wants government officials to be at his next mediation session over a conviction of carelessly using a firearm.

 

Victor Nanatakapo says he wants to ask them what title they think they hold over the land his family lives on.

 

Earlier this year, Nanatakapo was convicted of shooting a rifle near some boaters that were on Delaronde Lake near his house.

 

He told the judge he fired the gun to scare them away.

 

Nanatakapo also said that tourists had ran over his nets and disturbed a nearby burial site for years.

 

The judge gave Nanatakapo a conditional sentence, but told him to try and meet with local residents to explain his actions.

 

Nanatakapo says he's still willing to do that, but he wants officials from the province and municipality to be there, as well.

 

A meeting between the two sides was scheduled for Friday, but Nanatakapo says there were problems with how it was set up.

 

The Crown prosecutor's office says if the probation officer handling the case doesn't feel Nanatakapo is living up to the terms of the judge's instructions, he could be charged with breaching the court order.
