MGEU - Manitoba's Largest Health Care Union

The MGEU is a made-in-Manitoba union with over 40,000 members across the province, including 17,500 members working in health care. We have:

  • Staff representatives in eight offices throughout the province;
  • A Resource Centre open five days a week; and
  • An entire team of specialists to provide the experience and know-how no other union can match.

And all MGEU staff and elected members live and work right here in Manitoba.

What you need to know about representation votes.

With the proclamation of Bill 29, Manitoba health care workers must now vote to choose the union they want to represent them.

The new law means the following groups of workers in each health region will be represented by one collective agreement in one union:

  1. Professional-Technical/EMS workers
  2. Facility Support workers
  3. Community Support workers
  4. Nurses
  5. Doctors
  6. Medical Residents
  7. Physician Assistants and Clinical Assistants
