MGEU/NUPGE members have new agreement with improvements from the interest arbitration decision awarded in July.
Winnipeg (19 Oct. 2017) — After 3 years without a new contract, members of the Manitoba Government and General Employees' Union (MGEU/NUPGE) who work at Macdonald Youth Services, Northern/Alternative Parent Home Program have ratified a new 4-year collective agreement.
Wages within the new agreement are based on an interest arbitration decision awarded this past July 2017, in which the arbitrator decided to provide members with increases in each of the 4 years. It also includes a number of changes to contract language, which the union negotiated with the employer and members voted to accept last week.
MGEU/NUPGE members are encouraged to make sure the union has their most current contact information in order to receive a copy of their new collective agreement once it’s been finalized and signed.
The National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) is one of Canada's largest labour organizations with over 370,000 members. Our mission is to improve the lives of working families and to build a stronger Canada by ensuring our common wealth is used for the common good. — NUPGE
