Ronald Wally (Winnipeg—Birds Hill)

Wally was a civil servant during the federal elections of 1979 and 1980.[1] He became executive director of the Manitoba Association of Health Care Professionals later in the 1980s, representing unionized technologists.[2] In 1994, he accused the provincial government of privileging doctors over other health professionals in its plans for health care reform.[3]

Wally was the principle negotiator for workers at CancerCare Manitoba in 2000, and helped prevent an illegal strike from occurring.[4] He was the union's business representative in 2003, and took part in strike discussions involving Manitoba hospital workers.[5] In 2005, he was appointed to the Manitoba Tire Stewardship Board.[6]
