Winnipeg, January 13, 2024 - In a significant development for Manitoba's civil service employees, the Manitoba Government and General Employees' Union (MGEU), representing approximately 11,500 workers, has announced a tentative agreement with the provincial government.


This announcement follows closely on the heels of the recent provincial election, where the MGEU threw its support behind the New Democratic Party (NDP).


The proposed agreement, which is still pending ratification, is poised to bring substantial wage increases. If approved, employees will receive 14 percent wage increase over a span of four years. Additionally, each full-time employee will be paid a signing bonus of $1,800.


The union has indicated that the ratification vote will be held later this month.


The government's stance on how this 14 percent wage hike will affect the provincial budget remains unclear, as the NDP Government has refrained from making any official comments on the matter.


The outcome of the ratification vote will undoubtedly have far-reaching implications for both civil service workers and the provincial government's financial planning. The Union has indicated a vote may happen before the end of the month.
