700 Winnipeg health support workers getting deletion notices as part of overhaul

WINNIPEG — Hundreds of support staff at three Winnipeg hospitals are getting their deletion notices.

The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority says 700 health care aides, clerks and other workers at St. Bonifcae Grace and Victoria hospitals are affected.

Unions representing some of the workers say the measures will lead to layoffs and a loss of full-time jobs.

But the health authority says it's too soon to say if there will be layoffs or a reduction of hours.

The changes are part of the ongoing overhaul of Manitoba's health system.

The health authority says these changes allow for a better balance of services at each hospital on a daily basis.
