Young workers today are facing many social and workplace issues. However, many have taken these challenges as an opportunity to create positive change, and to impact their communities for the better.

MAHCP President’s message on Public Sector Unions’ filing for Injunction

Manitoba Association of Health Care Professionals -


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.

Today’s media release is here.


In Solidarity,

Bob Moroz

MAHCP President

Given your refusal to allow us time on your June 26, 2017 Board of Directors meeting agenda, we have opted for an alternate method of communication. We are determined to share information that sets out the perspective of our members who remain locked out from Variety Place Association Inc. The following questions are intended to share the insight of our members who would describe a lack of dignity and respect displayed by the management in ongoing interactions with our members.

“In this case, the employer cut off all paid sick days — and these are professionals who deal with sick individuals all day long. Can you imagine the risk that poses, both to the nurses and their clients? This kind of action is as mean-spirited as it is irresponsible." — Warren (Smokey)Thomas.

NAPE says, Be proud. Buy local.


"While this campaign focuses on NAPE/NUPGE members and the businesses that employ them, the broader goal is to support our local economy by encouraging people to buy local.” — Jerry Earle, NAPE President
