Vita’s Michelle Gawronsky was recently elected as the president of MGEU.
On October 20, MGEU delegates at Convention 2012 elected Michelle Gawronsky from Vita as their new union president.
“Now is the time to listen to you, the members and stand together so we can be the most powerful and effective union possible,” said Gawronsky in her acceptance speech.

She began her working career as a Health Care Aide (HCA) in the nursing home in Vita in 1976 and began her union activism in the 1980′s due to a workplace issue.
