Brian Pallister campaigned on protecting public services. But now his government is turning its back on Manitoba families. Instead, they're cutting our health care – and talking about privatizing services.The damage to our health care is already starting, and it's only going to get worse if we don't stand up together. As Manitoba's largest union, representing more than 16,000 people working in health care, we are a strong voice for health care. And we know we have a responsibility to speak out — because every one of our members relies on Manitoba's network of health services for themselves and their families.
Manitoba is at its best when we're all working together - with strong
public services that keep our province running. Manitobans have worked
hard to keep services public. We need more people, working
together, for better services. If we don't stand up for the public
services we rely on now, they'll be cut or privatized and we'll never
get them back.
In a medical emergency, skills matter. And a trained, professional paramedic can make a life-and-death difference. Manitoba’s ambulance paramedic professionals have the skills and training to deliver the urgent care you need on the spot and en route to hospital. Their expertise is the beginning of your journey to a successful recovery. And now they’re joined by community paramedics, who provide advanced medical assessments and non-emergency care to people in their own homes and elsewhere in the community.
Keeping Manitoba's Liquor Marts public means great service and selection for customers, safer communities, and reinvesting in services for Manitobans everywhere. This coalition of Manitoba organizations believes in keeping liquor public because public serves us better.
Families rely on quality public services every day and when times are tough they need these services more than ever. Cutting public spending on services provided in our local hospitals, or the schools in our community, or the home care that helps frail seniors, or the programs that protect our food and water safety, or the early learning centres that give our children the best start in life would be irresponsible and damage the quality of life for families.
Don’t stand by while politicians decide on public service cuts that could hurt your family and community. In this crucial time, your voice has extraordinary power. Join our campaign and make sure the politicians hear your voice about the value of public services and the need for tax fairness.
Working Families Manitoba is a community campaign of the Manitoba Federation of Labour designed to raise awareness on issues that matter to working people like you.Their primary goals are to:
- Make sure politicians of all stripes pay attention to issues working families care about; and...
- That voters learn where their candidates stand on these issues, and consider those positions when casting their votes.
That’s why we’re talking about how important it is to protect our progress in providing workplace safety and financial security for working families — now and in the future.
