“Right now, it’s so important that we remind Manitobans just how much we rely on each other to receive the kind of services we all want and deserve." — Michelle Gawronsky, MGEU President
Winnipeg (17 Feb. 2016) — The Manitoba Government and General Employees' Union (MGEU/NUPGE) has begun airing two ads, on television and online, in support of the union’s Keep Us Together campaign.
Keep Us Together campaign promotes the value of publics services
“We launched the campaign late last fall, with radio ads and an interactive website,” said MGEU President Michelle Gawronsky. “Right now, it’s so important that we remind Manitobans just how much we rely on each other to receive the kind of services we all want and deserve."
"Whether our members work directly with the public on the front-lines, or somewhere behind the scenes, it’s a team effort. Our members are already doing more with less and you can’t keep cutting parts of the system without weakening the whole thing," she said.
Ads promote dialogue about the importance of public services and the workers who provide them
Gawronsky said the ads are just another creative and memorable way to get the message out to the public. “We think this kind of advertising is a great way to get people talking and we’re hoping members will share them widely with friends and family over social media.”
The ads are slated to run for four weeks on television stations throughout the province, as well as on a wide variety of online sites.
