Two Manitoba Government and General Employees’ Union (MGEU) Locals in Brandon, Man., ratified new collective agreements on May 8.
Members of the YWCA Westman Women’s Shelter, Local 171 — who assist women and children who’ve left their homes because of domestic violence, and YWCA Meredith Place Residence — Local 424, who provide temporary housing for Brandon’s most vulnerable, both voted to accept four-year deals with their employer.
Highlights include wage increases in each year of the agreement and updated and extended maternity and paternity leave language, said the union.
