Message from the President

To the MANTE membership

We have finished yet another year of ever-changing health protocols, in-class learning, remote learning, and Covid 19 challenges both at work and at home. Your effort, commitment and dedication to the students and staff you work with is recognized and appreciated by the MANTE executive.  A well-deserved break is around the corner.

I will continue to have any information pertinent to the membership posted on the MANTE website throughout the summer. Although my role as MANTE president takes a hiatus from July 1 to Aug 16,         I will check my email regularly and help where needed. I will be back Aug 16th as your half time MANTE President.

The multi association Presidents met with the Education Deputy Minister on Monday June21st.

Concerns regarding seniority, job security, Collective Bargaining groups, how new job postings will be implemented, etc were expressed. The Education Deputy Minister reiterated numerous times that school based staff would see very little change in their buildings. The intent of the government is to add resources to the classrooms, not lessen them. The special needs funding process is also something they are looking at. No concrete answers were given to any other questions or concerns. “This is a five-year journey and we have only begun” was the response to most of the concerns raised. We will be having another meeting in Sept. I will keep you appraised of any information that comes from that as well.

As the Covid 19 restrictions are eased, please remember to adhere to the health protocols to stay safe and healthy.

I wish you a wonderful break with quality time with family and friends and enjoy our great Manitoba summer.


Sincerely on behalf of the MANTE Executive and myself,

Martha Wiebe

MANTE President

Manitoba Association of Non-Teaching Employees


The Manitoba Association of Non-Teaching Employees (MANTE) was certified as the bargaining unit for all clerical employees of the St. James-Assiniboia School Division #2 on November 23, 1977.

We are currently an organization of approximately 400 members. At the school level we represent Educational Assistants, Program Assistants,  Library Technicians, Interpreter Tutors, Secretarial Staff, Computerized Notetakers and Behavior Intervention Specialists. At the Board Office and Maintenance we represent non-management Secretarial Staff including payroll, accounts payable/receivable and reception.

The objects and purposes of the Association are to unite into one organization all non-managerial employees, to act as a bargaining agent for employees, to regulate the relations between employees in an equitable manner and to maintain harmonious relations between the employers and the employees.
