Manitoba's highest court has ruled in favour of the provincial government over the thorny issue of its unpopular wage freeze.
On Wednesday, the Manitoba Court of Appeal overturned a lower court ruling that had concluded the wage freeze, which affected 120,000 public-sector workers, was unconstitutional.
The Partnership to Defend Public Services says it is disappointed and it is considering its options, including asking the Supreme Court to weigh in on the issue.
The group said it is pleased the Court of Appeal upheld a part of the decision relating to the collective bargaining process between the University of Manitoba Faculty Association and the University of Manitoba in 2016. It found the provincial government interfered in that dispute.
