Premier Brian Pallister says he will be asking non-essential government workers to consider a reduced work week in an effort to save money during the coronavirus outbreak.
The Manitoba premier said he will be talking with “more than a dozen” public sector unions later Tuesday to discuss the proposed measure, which would affect civil servants and Crown corporation workers who are not on the front line.
“It doesn’t solve all our problems. It’s not designed to, but it does give a chance for all of us who are not on the front line to support those who are,” Pallister said.
