Funding Shortfall for Personal Care Home Leads to Strike Threat
NCN Chief Marcel Moody confirmed on November 9, 2016, he had written Terry Goertzen, Associate Regional Director General of INAC, regarding the funding crisis being faced by the NCN Personal Care Home (the “Home”) and the recent strike threat by MGEU members over wages.
The Home located on NCN Reserve Land has twenty four beds. It is licensed as a personal care home under the provisions of The Manitoba Health Services Insurance Act.
Because the Home is chronically under-funded it has been unable to provide wage parity for its employees with other health care professionals working in Northern Manitoba. This situation has negatively affected the recruitment and retention of staff and has now led to a strike mandate being approved by MGEU members. Read the Newsletter for the complete story.
