MAHCP members are invited to participate in our inaugural Window Sticker Contest!
The goal of this contest is to increase our visibility day-to-day among our fellow Winnipeggers around the city, Manitobans beyond the Perimeter and beyond the southern half of the province.
Please place this sticker in a safe, unobtrusive part of your vehicle’s inside back window, take a selfie of yourself (or ask a friend to snap a pic) with the sticker visible, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org for your chance to win a gift card.
Stickers were handed out at the MAHCP AGM on Oct. 11, but for those who weren’t able to attend and would still like a sticker to participate in the contest, please contact your workplace’s Member Advocate.
There will also be stickers available at upcoming site meetings with MAHCP President Bob Moroz and Labour Relations Officers. Please visit our website mahcp.ca often to view our calendar, which is located right on the home page. Events will be added as meeting rooms are booked.
In addition, members can pick up window stickers at the MAHCP office located at 101-1500 Notre Dame Ave. from Monday to Friday, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
We will be highlighting your selfies on our MAHCP Facebook page and in our December newsletter.
This is an ongoing contest, which means there will be several chances to win a gift card – at least one per month. We’ll keep it going as long as we’re receiving new pictures.

Friesen told the Free Press Tuesday doctors will be expected to abide by a government policy that all public-sector workers undergo pay freezes for two years, followed by increases no greater than 0.75 per cent in the third year and one per cent in Year 4 of any collective agreement.
The legislative assembly passed Bill 28 to implement the government's public-sector pay regime in 2017. Doctors were included within the provisions of the bill. But the Progressive Conservatives have yet to proclaim it, so it is not yet law.
A coalition of 25 labour unions — not including Doctors Manitoba — is fighting the bill in the courts. A hearing is set to begin in November.
Manitoba's nearly 3,000 doctors will have to do their part to help the province overcome a stubbornly high operating deficit, Health Minister Cameron Friesen says. A four-year contract between the pro...

Nurses at the hemodialysis unit at St. Boniface Hospital have penned a letter voicing concerns over what they are calling a “very unsafe” situation for both patients and nurses.
The letter, which the provincial opposition NDP supplied the media with on Tuesday, says nurses in the hemodialysis unit are being required to be on call at in the peritoneal dialysis unit “for which we have little to no formal training or experience.”
“We have repeatedly asked our manager and director for a meeting to allow us to discuss our concerns and to come to a consensus for a way to move forward in this situation,” the letter, signed by 37 nurses, said. “Up to this point, those requests have been ignored.”
