Manitoba Liberal Statement: IBEW 2034 and Hydro Line Worker Strike

March 10, 2021

Manitoba Liberals are proud to support IBEW and Hydro line workers in their bid to get a fair deal.

Hydro workers are essential to Manitoba's economy and families: they literally make sure the province keeps the lights on, whether it is a pandemic or not.

Hydro workers have diligently delivered repairs and maintenance in states of emergency, record cold temperatures and during a pandemic.

The Pallister PCs have been relentlessly interfering in Hydro, demanding layoffs, wage freezes and 15% reductions in the work force.

This is direct interference in an important right: the right to negotiate the value of your work.

The PCs are interfering with and undermining this right for essential workers at Hydro and elsewhere.
