Bill 28/PSSA – Gov files Appeal

The MB Government has filed their appeal of the Court of Queen’s bench decision declaring Bill 28/the PSSA unconstitutional. The appeal by-and-large repeats previously-made arguments, and can be read here. The PDPS (the group of unions challenging the PSSA) has 30 days to file a response – it will appear on the “Issues” tab on the UMFA website once it’s filed.  

The remedies portion of the trial is now scheduled for November 22-26, 2021, and will be heard by the Justice who heard the original challenge. Court proceedings are open to the public, and documentation will appear on the UMFA website’s “Issues” tab.
