Feb 26, 2019
Members of Patient Transport Services – Local 451 (Emergency Essentials Inc), are are the latest Manitobans to unionize with the MGEU, our province’s largest union.
Formerly Stretcher Services of Manitoba and based out of Winnipeg, the union’s newest members are the largest provider of non-emergency patient transport services in Manitoba.
“We now have 86 new members at Patient Transport Services and we are so happy to represent the Stretcher Attendants and Dispatchers,” said MGEU President Michelle Gawronsky. “As the strongest health care union in the province, these new members recognized MGEU’s proven track record, along with the lowest dues in Manitoba, as the right fit for them. We are so proud to welcome them to the MGEU!”
The next step for the new members is to elect a Local Executive and bargain their first contract.
“These folks provide vital assistance to so many
Manitobans, and our union is eager to work with members and share all the
experience and expertise we have to offer,” Gawronsky said.
