INFO ON MPI STRIKE
The latest from MPI's website as of Sept 15, 2023
A mutually agreed upon conciliator has been engaged and the conciliation process is expected to get underway early next week.
While MPI works to resolve the ongoing labour interruption, it continues to expand service delivery to Manitobans. Effective immediately, customers who have had a Class 1-6 or Air Brake knowledge test cancelled because of labour interruption or who already have a test booked with MPI can walk in to take their test without an appointment. Further details are available on MPI’s website.
MPI has also been able to resume Class 5 road tests in over 20 communities across the province. Our strong and valued relationships with MPI-certified driver instructor partners is providing Manitobans with continued access to these tests. Customers waiting for a test are being contacted by MPI to schedule a time in their community.
MPI is continuing to explore options to resume Class 1-4 road testing in Manitoba. Classes 1-4, which include ambulances, buses and commercial vehicles, require more in-depth training and testing procedures than Class 5 passenger vehicles and all of our planning will maintain all expected public safety considerations.
