The majority of Manitoba’s health care workers have chosen to ratify a collective agreement with the province.
Workers represented by the Manitoba Association of Health Care Professionals had been taking part in online and in-person over the past two weeks after a year and a half without an agreement in place.
All but one of the MAHCP’s certificates — which are essentially sub groups of the central table bargaining unit — accepted the agreement.
“This result shows that members of MAHCP continue to be dedicated to the people of Manitoba,” said MAHCP president Bob Moroz.
“This ratification process has also allowed our membership to express their desire to continue to educate Manitobans about who they are, what they do, and how health care is so much more than doctors and nurses.”
Staff of the WRHA Corporate Programs certificate, who did not ratify, will be contacted by the MAHCP to determine if there will be a strike.
