Proposal includes wage increases for each of the four years and an increase in benefits available through Flex-Benefit Health Spending Accounts.
Winnipeg (19 Nov. 2009) - After more than 50 bargaining sessions, members of the Manitoba Government and General Employees' Union (MGEU/NUPGE) who are employed by the Manitoba Liquor Control Commission (MLCC) have reached a tentative four-year agreement.
MGEU says the agreement includes wage increases over each of the four years as well as increases to both full-time and part-time Flex-Benefit Health Spending Accounts.
The bargaining committee is recommending that members vote to accept the agreement. Ratification voting dates and locations are currently being finalized. An information package, including a copy of the full tentative agreement, will be mailed to GOLICO members shortly. The employees are members of MGEU's Government Liquor Commission (GOLICO) component.
