Members of the Manitoba Government and General Employees’ Union (MGEU) have voted Michelle Gawronsky to be their president for a third term.
Gawronsky was first elected in 2012 and has been a MEGU member for over 30 years.
“We have a big job to do and the members are counting on us. By working together we can make sure we continue to be the strongest union we can be,” she said.
Gawronsky’s background includes working as a home care attendant, health care aid and activity coordinator at the Vita Personal Care Home. She was also a paramedic for 14 years.
The MGEU represents more than 42,000 members province-wide, making it the largest union in Manitoba.
