Starting December 8, 2019, successful unions take responsibility for their new members in the following employers` organizations: Interlake-Eastern, Northern, Prairie Mountain, Southern. Bill 29 has established a fixed number of tariff units and collective bargaining units within the province`s health sector under the Health Review Act. NOTE: On 13 December 2019, the Commissioner issued bargaining certificates for the following bargaining units: 26 July 2019: The voter assistance service will be open on Tuesday 30 July 2019 at 09:00. Staff are encouraged to contact Helpdesk at 1-888-281-8683 for any questions. The four unions representing public health workers are preparing to change new members and return to the negotiating table. The vote on the health sector union was divided into 18 sections in all health regions of Manitoba, including common services. In 2017, the Progressive Conservative government forced the health care system – including nurses, paramedics and hospital workers across Manitoba – to vote on reducing the number of provincial bargaining units. July 4, 2019: Union Access Opportunities (UAOs) allows unions participating in representation votes to access employment so that workers have the opportunity to meet directly with union representatives if they wish. Unions can set up a table or use a meeting room to meet with staff and answer their questions.
This means that the unsuccessful union remains responsible for representing its members until a new certificate is issued. The workers remain members and pay for this union. During this period, the union should, as usual, do so with respect to its representation, including, but not limited to participation in appeal hearings and the treatment of disciplinary measures, return to working protocols, health and safety issues, etc. 20 November 2019: the Commissioner has adopted a decision confirming the dates on which the winning trade union organisations will assume responsibility for the representation of their new members. “The UNM has won all the votes of union representation in the care sector,” President Darlene Jackson said in a press release.
