MGEU/NUPGE working with Manitobans to support public services through Keep it Together campaign.
Winnipeg (17 Nov. 2015) — Manitoba is at its best when we’re all working together — with strong public services that keep our province running.
MGEU/NUPGE provides another opportunity for Manitobans to say why public services are key to communities
That’s the motivation for the latest community campaign aimed at keeping vital public services together for the Manitobans who rely on them every day by the Manitoba Government and General Employees' Union’s (MGEU/NUPGE).
Through the Elephant Talk campaign, the union has had great success in helping MGEU/NUPGE members talk about how our public services can deliver the results Manitobans deserve only if we give those services the resources they need. The campaign also gave Manitobans the opportunity to provide their own perspective on why we need to protect our public services.
Campaign will highlight the value of public services and why privatization is a threat
Keep Us Together continues that conversation with over a dozen public workers talking about the services they provide, how Manitobans benefit from those services, and what we stand to lose from cuts and privatization.
It features radio ads airing on stations throughout Manitoba and a new campaign site, called keepustogether.ca, which allows you to listen to audio clips from MGEU/NUPGE members talking about how their work is vital to all Manitobans.
Show support on Facebook and Twitter
People can also add their voice to the conversation by using predesigned graphics to share on Facebook and Twitter or the shareable creation tool to upload your own image, apply an overlay, and share with friends and followers on social media.
Check out keepustogether.ca, share with friends and family, and check back for updates over the next few months as the campaign continues to grow.
