MFL Submission on Bill 31: The Advanced Education Administration Amendment Act Wednesday, October 25, 2017

The MFL stands in solidarity with Manitoba's post-secondary students in opposing this Bill that will erase longstanding protections for students to keep Manitoba's post-secondary education affordable and will open the door to even higher costs for education by deregulating course-related fees.

MFL Submission on Bill 24: The Red Tape Reduction and Government Efficiency Act Monday, October 23, 2017

The MFL opposes this omnibus Bill that cuts protections for Manitoba families related to health, our environment, and public funds. This Bill will erase taxpayer protections related to Public-Private Partnership projects, that have been shown to cost much more in the long-term than traditional public financing.

MFL Submission on Bill 19: The Efficiency Manitoba Act Thursday, May 11, 2017

The MFL advocates for Manitoba to be a leader on energy efficiency, and to keep building our hydro-electric resources to create good jobs, reduce carbon emissions and keep our hydro rates low. The MFL opposes the Pallister government's plan to break-off Power Smart from Manitoba Hydro and gamble on a new agency to deliver energy efficiency programs.

Submission on Bill 29: The Health Sector Bargaining Unit Review Act Monday, May 08, 2017

The MFL opposes Bill 29's proposal to trigger disruptive and divisive representation votes in health care, moving the focus away from patient care and trampling over the democratic decisions made by workers about their union representation. The MFL advances an alternative model for health care bargaining - supported by all health care unions - to establish union bargaining councils instead.

MFL Submission on Bill 28: The Public Services Sustainability Act Monday, May 08, 2017

The MFL denounces Bill 28 for trampling over workers' constitutionally-protected right to free and fair collective bargaining. Bill 28 is unnecessary, unfair and unconstitutional. Government should come to the bargaining table and negotiate a fair deal for the public sector workers who provide the services that Manitoba families count on every day!
