The Pallister Government announced Bill 29: The Health Sector Bargaining Unit Review Act in May of 2018 and appointed Commissioner Bob Pruden. The newly appointed Commissioner has announced that some time in 2019 there will be a vote on which union you want representing you. This will affect the rights you have, determine who will fight for you going forward and what your collective agreement will be.
The government has yet to announce when the vote will occur. We will post that information here as soon as we have it.
When it comes to Professional, Technical, Paramedical employees, MAHCP has led bargaining on many fronts, including the Grievance Investigation Process; the portability of employees’ seniority and benefits between MAHCP employers across the province; and first to negotiate Maternity Leave top-up for full-time and part-time members. Other unions followed in our footsteps.
MAHCP is the only union in our province that is dedicated exclusively to representing Professional, Technical and Paramedical health care employees (Allied Health).
Our members’ concerns cannot be overshadowed by the concerns of larger groups, such as health care support, maintenance or even non-health care related groups.
MAHCP is a union of approximately 3,900 members. We represent more than 160 Allied Health disciplines.
