The MGEU Young Members Committee is taking part in the 2015 Winnipeg Polar Plunge for Special Olympics Manitoba and they need help! You can help them to surpass their goal by making a donation to one (or both) of the union's teams.

Realizing that the crisis requires a greater response from the international community, NUPGE has called on the Conservative government to step up with more resources.
