Fighting for working families in the legislature

Dear Sisters, Brothers and Friends,

I know many were surprised by the procedural delays in the legislature yesterday by the Manitoba NDP. To be clear, we are glad to see that one party in the Legislature is interested in fighting legislation that will be bad for working people in our province.

Our understanding is that the Pallister government could have introduced the budget yesterday, and they are able to now, but they are choosing not to. The NDP is using every tool in its toolkit to make sure we have enough time to organize opposition to legislation that the Pallister government wants to ram through the legislature this spring, including legislation that will weaken the rights of working people and unions. They are doing this because they are on our side. They are on the side of working families.

In Solidarity,

Kevin Rebeck

President of the Manitoba Federation of Labour
