Mandate Letter from the Province

CUPE Local 998 would like to address the Mandate Letter from the Province that was released by the Minister of Crown Services.

The Hydro Electric Board that was put in place by this Conservative Government to oversee the strategic operations of Manitoba Hydro. It is telling that this Conservative Government does not trust their own board to align with their extreme mandate.

To that end, Manitoba Hydro President and CEO Jay Grewal announce that there will be no further reductions in staffing levels. The reductions required by the Government have already been achieved in the VDP (Voluntary Departure Program).

Jay went on to say that further staff reductions could lead to a reduction in the reliability of electricity to Manitobans.

CUPE 998 will always stand against Conservative attacks on Manitoba Hydro, including against the reliability of our electrical grid. We are pleased to see the Hydro Board and President standing on the side of Manitobans who expect a strong, reliable Manitoba Hydro.

In Solidarity
