Get a membership card
Even if the MGEU is your union, everyone in your workplace still has to fill out a membership application to officially become an MGEU member. Applications can only be signed if you are an employee in a workplace which is already represented by the MGEU. If your workplace is not yet represented by a union, contact our organizing department through our Resource Centre.
Once you fill out an application, we'll send your membership card with your name and a six-digit number on it. That number is your MGEU membership number (aka membership I.D.).
Once you have that card, the MGEU can start sending you important information about what is happening in your union -- including at the bargaining table -- and where your dues are being spent. It also means you'll be able to save on everything from furniture and gardening supplies to fitness passes and legal services throughout Manitoba -- just by showing your membership card.
How to get a membership card
Just follow these three easy steps:
1. Contact our Resource Centre and they will send you an application form and a self-addressed stamped envelope.
2. Fill the form out completely. Remember to print carefully and sign and date at the bottom.
3. Return the application to:
MGEU Head Office
or drop it off at any MGEU office.
We cannot accept applications by email or fax, as the union must have a signed, original copy of the application.
