CUPE Manitoba Endorses Greg Selinger for Leader of Manitoba’s NDP

The CUPE Manitoba executive, represented by union leaders from across the province, has endorsed Greg Selinger as leader of the Manitoba NDP.
“Greg Selinger’s record in support of working people in Manitoba is unrivaled nation-wide” said Kelly Moist, President of CUPE Manitoba “we are confident that under his leadership we will continue to see progressive action on labour issues moving forward”.
The CUPE Manitoba executive is composed of representatives from across the province, including workers in health care, school divisions, social services, municipalities, and long-term care. The CUPE Manitoba executive voted in support of Greg Selinger at a meeting held on January 23rd, 2015.
“Many of our members remember what it is like to work under a Conservative government” said Moist “and we need to work together now to ensure that we elect a strong, united NDP government in 2016”.
CUPE Manitoba will be encouraging CUPE members who are members of the NDP to support Greg Selinger at the Manitoba NDP Convention on March 6 -8.
While all members have the right to vote for whomever they support, CUPE Manitoba encourages members to seriously consider Greg Selinger’s proven record in support of labour.
“Under Greg Selinger’s leadership we have developed a relationship of mutual respect” said Moist “he always lends an ear to labour, and is honest with us about what can and cannot be done – and we respect that honesty”.
