Some benefits enjoyed by MNU members are not covered by the collective agreement, but are provided by pension and fiduciary benefits boards: today, the MGEU filed a group complaint on behalf of members of the public service who worked in the LifeFlight Air Ambulance program and were recently dismissed without notice. The public service collective agreement provides for the dismissal without notice of senior managers. According to MGEU President Michelle Gawronsky, this was not the case for LifeFlight members who were fired on June 26, when the government suspended the program that Manitoban has served for more than 34 years. A collective agreement is a written and binding contract between the Union and the employer, which sets out the terms of employment. The Manitoba Nurses Union seeks to continually improve working conditions, wages and benefits through the negotiation of new collective agreements. Manitoba health staff will vote on the union they want to represent from August 8 to noon, August 22, 2019 – and starting Thursday, July 11, they will have the opportunity to meet with members of the MGEU Care Comes First team to ask questions and learn more about the MGEU.

Here is a summary of salaries and benefits under the central table agreement that EU members ratified on 30 April 2014. It covers the majority of the members of the Union. All nurses who have 20 years of service (according to Section 2105) and… Nurses also benefited from a co-financed COLA fund for all health care workers covered by the Health Workers` Pension Plan (HEPP). Contributions to the COLA Fund will begin in 2014 and COLA will be paid in 2018. This would mean that a long-term RN, which would be encouraged, would not benefit from the 20-year stage. That was not the intention when the 20-year stage was negotiated. The Pallister government has announced amendments to the Mental Health Act that are of great concern to the MGEU and medical staff across the province.
