Interlake mental health workers could strike as early as tomorrow

  • Print

Interlake region members of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) could be on strike as early as 8:30 a.m.

Represented by CUPE Local , they assist in locating safe and affordable housing for community members who live with mental illness and help them with rehabilitation, training, and life skills, union officials said today.

The CMHA – Interlake Region service area includes as far south as Lockport and Stony Mountain and extends north of Ashern as well as in Beauséjour, Pinawa, and Lac du Bonnet. The CMHA – Interlake Region is funded primarily through the Interlake-Eastern RHA.

The union said the Interlake workers are paid 15 to 36 per cent lower wages than similar workers in Winnipeg.

Members voted 100 per cent in favour of a strike last month, and two conciliation sessions failed to reach a deal.
