Saskatchewan and its doctors reach tentative four-year contract agreement

REGINA — Saskatchewan and the group representing the province's 2,200 doctors have reached a tentative four-year contract agreement.

The government says the deal with the Saskatchewan Medical Association is retroactive to April 2013 and ends March 2017.

Association president Dr. Mark Brown says the proposed deal would keep Saskatchewan's doctors competitive with their colleagues in neighbouring provinces.

No details have been released.

The medical association is recommending doctors accept the deal in a ratification vote to be completed by the end of the month.
