Manitoba Association of Health Care Professionals welcomes Jason Linklater as the new President for the 2022-2024 term. MAHCP represents over 7000 allied health professionals from 190 different disciplines across Manitoba.
“I’m honoured to be representing allied health professionals and the dedicated, skilled work our members do every day,” said Linklater. “Our association has experienced a huge amount of growth over the last few years and I am excited to help lead MAHCP through this time of transition and solidarity-building.”
MAHCP’s Central Table Bargaining, a group that represents over 6000 allied health professionals, is currently in negotiations. Members in this bargaining group have been without a contract for over four years, and with some members going even longer.
“One of my most urgent goals, alongside our bargaining committee, is fighting to get allied health a fair deal. The services our members provide are critical to the health care system in Manitoba,” said Linklater. “I am committed to strongly advocating for increased allied health investments in retaining, recruitment and retention in throughout the health care system.”
Jason Linklater comes to MAHCP as an Orthopedic Technologist Educator at Health Sciences Centre where he has been employed for 28 years. He has over 20 years of experience with MAHCP Executive Council, in addition to being on the current Bargaining Committee.
