Petition: Open Bargaining, International Healthcare, Adequate Funding

1296
Goal: 1400

Year after year, the post-secondary community has been shaken by consecutive cuts to operating grants, the dismissal of international student healthcare, continued government interference, and many more actions. Is this what we should settle for?

Post-secondary community, this is NOT our new normal. To stand for access, affordability, and a quality experience, sign the petition below and add your own voice to #StudentsSpeakUp. We need you because:

  • Universities and colleges deserve the opportunity to openly bargain without government interference
  • International students deserve to access the same public healthcare as domestic students and at an affordable rate
  • While external living costs are only on the rise, students are continuing to pay more because the government wants to pay less

Students, faculty, and community members... it's time to speak up. Add your story below.

My name is Tristan and I email you today to strongly urge you to adopt the recommendations put forward by the Manitoba Alliance of Post-Secondary Students (MAPSS). These recommendations call the Province to: (1) to allow international students to buy into the public healthcare system at the proposed administrative cost-neutral rate, (2) release the grip on post-secondary bargaining affairs, and (3) end the cuts to post-secondary operating grants The pandemic has drastically changed how students are learning and studying. For years, university communities have had to do more with far less. This is NOT our new normal. As Manitoba’s next generation of professionals and large contributors to the province's economic recovery, the province needs students. But right now students need the Government of Manitoba to show that it is willing to support us. , thank you for listening to concerns from community members like me. We hope that the Province hears us loud and clear. Tristan S.4 months ago
