Members from the University of Winnipeg Students’ Association (MGEU Local 153) ratified a new three-year agreement today.

The new contract includes a general wage increase of 2.5% in the first two years of the agreement and 2.9% in the third year of the agreement.

After day-long negotiations with the help of a conciliation officer, the UWSA reversed its position on a number key issues for Local 153 members and the two sides were able to reach a tentative agreement on June 10.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to send the UWSA a message in support of Local 153 members – your efforts helped reach this agreement. 

Local 153 members are encouraged to update their contact information to ensure they receive a copy of the new contract once available.
