Dear MAHCP members,
We have added two quick-access buttons to the MAHCP website with information on the Pallister Government’s Bill 28 and Bill 29. Click here to access the buttons.
As a quick recap, Bill 28: The Public Service Sustainability Act seeks to impose a four-year wage cap on all unionized workers in the public sector. This cap would be zero increases in years one and two, up to 0.75% in year three and up to 1% in year four.
Specifically aimed at public sector workers in health care is Bill 29, which is named The Health Sector Bargaining Review Act. This act seeks to force representation votes in seven categories, including professional/technical/paramedical.
Attached is a photo of what the buttons look like online. For cellphones, it takes up a larger portion on the main photo on the homepage, but it’s still easy to access.
For clarification, these buttons are meant to be solely informational. We’re currently working on a separate website related to the representation votes that will be rolled out in the coming days.
We’ll be updating the information for these buttons as soon as something new comes up, so feel free to check back often.
Also, we encourage you to let your MAHCP colleagues know about the buttons. By sharing it digitally, we can prevent having to print a lot of this material on paper, which is a win-win for our union and the environment.
If you have feedback on the buttons, including ideas for new sections that could be added, please contact our Communications Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org
Bob Moroz, MAHCP President
