The Myers LLP Labour Department is pleased to announce that the Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench has declared The Public Services Sustainability Act unconstitutional. In the court ruling, Queen’s Bench Justice Joan McKelvey wrote, “I have concluded that the (bill) operates as a draconian measure that has inhibited and dramatically reduced the unions’ bargaining power and violates (charter) associational rights.”
Congratulations to the Manitoba Federation of Labour and our 28 public-sector union clients, and thanks for letting us represent you!
