REGINA, Sask. — A strike by 10,000 government workers was averted Sunday, with the signing of a tentative contract with the province.

The Saskatchewan Government and General Employees Union, already in a legal strike position at the time, signed the deal at what amounted to the 11th hour.

The union represents staff ranging from jail guards and parks employees to clerks and highway workers.
