I’m very pleased to share some good news with all MAHCP members today. MAHCP, along with other unions who banded together to form the Partnership to Defend Public Services (PDPS), has won our court challenge to Bill 28, the Manitoba Government’s unconstitutional wage freeze legislation. Please see a news release from PDPS here, issued on behalf of all partner unions.
We have said all along that Bill 28 tramples on our right to free and fair collective bargaining, and the judge has agreed.
The Partnership’s legal team will be reviewing the judge’s full decision and we will have more to say about this landmark court case and its potential implications in the coming days and weeks. For now, we can celebrate a significant victory for Allied Health Professionals and all working people in Manitoba.
Bob Moroz, MAHCP President
