November 22, 2017

From Alex Alex Forrest
Attention all United Firefighters of Winnipeg members:
The EMSB wage arbitration Thursday has been cancelled as the city has withdrawn their application to decrease the UFFW mechanics wages by 30 percent – this is a result of much discussion with the city and after briefs were exchanged showing the city the strength of our research and arguments.
This is a huge win for all as our mechanics will now be aligned with our wage rates and increases.
