MAHCP President’s message on Public Sector Unions’ filing for Injunction
Today I attended a press conference with fellow Public Sector union leaders and the Manitoba Federation of Labour on the filing of an Injunction and Statement of Claim against Bill 28: the Public Services Sustainability Act.
MAHCP is a member of the Partnership to Defend Public Services (PDPS). The PDPS represents more than 110,000 workers in Manitoba.
The Public Services Sustainability Act, also known as Bill 28, undermines the process of meaningful, good faith bargaining by preventing public sector unions from negotiating the terms of conditions of employment for public sector workers.
This is a right that we as unions take seriously and are prepared to defend.
