Winnipeg (16 Oct. 2018) — Yesterday, the Government of Manitoba proclaimed October 15—19, Health Care Support Services Week, and October 18, Health Care Aide Day. 

Vital to day-to-day quality of health care

Health care support workers can be found throughout our health care system: in hospitals, clinics, personal care homes, chronic care, and long-term care facilities. The proclamation of this important week and day is an opportunity for Manitobans to celebrate and salute the thousands of frontline health workers who care for us each and every day.

Local 449 is the third new Local in the MGEU/NUPGE in the last 3 months, a trend that doesn’t surprise Gawronsky.
