MGEU President Addresses Truth about Provincial Wage Mandates and Escalating Strike Action
Earlier today, MGEU President Kyle Ross provided an update on the status of negotiations and escalating strike action at Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries (MBLL). “It’s become clear that the Stefanson Government’s wage mandate is flexible. But only for some folks. Folks like the Premier, Cabinet, doctors and typically those making six figures. For front line workers, 2 percent is as good as it gets,” Ross said. "So, the issue isn’t that the provincial government isn’t involved. The issue is how they are involving themselves by imposing a wage mandate that is out of touch with reality."

Open letter to Premier Stefanson: Lift Provincial Wage Mandate, Fix Public Services
On behalf of MGEU members currently in negotiations, I am calling on you to reconsider your government’s restrictive wage mandate.

And given that provincial public employers clearly have little room to bargain meaningfully, I respectfully request a meeting with you so that we can have a real discussion with someone who can change the course of bargaining. - Kyle Ross, MGEU President
