The Manitoba government has chosen to use COVID-19 as an opportunity to impose an austerity agenda that will hurt public services and all Manitobans.
Post-secondary institutions have been asked to cut up to 30% of their budgets. These cuts will affect thousands of workers and will undermine our capacity to innovate and deliver good quality education. These cuts are just the beginning in the government’s attacks to Manitoba’s public sector.
This is wrong.
Now is not the time to cut public services. It is a time for increased public investment in our public services. It is time support public sector workers and the vital role these workers hold in Manitoba’s battle against COVID-19.
Join our campaign and fight with us to support Manitoba’s public services.
