Manitoba Government and General Employees’ Union (MGEU) Local 432 members working at Knowles Centre, Support Assistance to Independent Living (SAIL) in Winnipeg, ratified a new three-year agreement Oct 10.
Highlights of the agreement include significant improvements to vacation and sick leave, including the introduction of a mental health day, said the union.
The workers assist older teens who've been in care to begin living independently.
In a separate vote, employees agreed to a change in their hours of work, extending their evening availability from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
