Bill 28: The Public Services Sustainability Act

At this writing (October 16, 2017), Bill 28, has been passed by the Manitoba Legislature, but has not been proclaimed and therefore is not legally in force. Nevertheless, it contemplates a restriction on teachers’ salary increases of up to a maximum of 0% in 2018/2019, 0% in 2019/2020, 0.75% in 2020/2021, and 1.0% in 2021/2022. The Manitoba Teachers’ Society has joined other public sector unions in the province in challenging Bill 28 in the Court of Queen’s Bench.
