Health Care Support Workers’ Week Proclaimed for October 9 – 13, 2017

CUPE ManitobaPHCC Main, PHCC News

Each year the Government of Manitoba proclaims Health Care Support Workers’ Week to celebrate the contributions of front-line health care workers to our province.

This year the proclamation comes with a grain of salt: the government’s proclamation occurs at the same time as massive restructuring in health care that will negatively affect front-line health care support staff.

While we ourselves honour this important day to celebrate everything CUPE health care support members contribute to Manitoban families, we hope the Minister of Health understands the true spirit of this proclamation, and stops the cuts immediately.
