Privatizing cleaning services in government buildings across Saskatchewan is expected to save 3.5 million dollars.
That’s according to the provincial government who is now negotiating with 12 firms that will clean government buildings hopefully by July 1st.
In January, the province announced it would be privatizing cleaning services in an effort to cut costs.
At that time Saskatchewan Government and Employees’ Union president Bob Bymoen says 139 full-time, 59 part-time and 53 non-permanent positions will be affected.
Current employee’s were notified by the Ministry of Central Services Monday.
