Preview Clip

Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister is making another demand of public-sector workers. In his annual state of the province speech, Pallister said he wants to reduce the number of public-sector bargaining units. Kevin Rebeck (REE'-beck), head of the Manitoba Federation of Labour, says he is worried Pallister is trying to drive down wages and benefits. (Pallister says fewer bargaining units would mean less negotiating. He says that would free up time and money for both workers and the government.)
