I checked the UpgradeMe terms and conditions, and unfortunately there isn't anything explicitly said about that.
Messaged them on FB.
Velocity on FB referred me straight back to the member centre.

Hi - had the same situation last year. I am platinum, my partner is red (his points are pooled into mine), and we were able to upgrade from Economy to Business using points from a higher based fare. I would assumue nothing has changed, but could only do the upgrade over the phone from memory. Good Luck!

if you're both on the same booking then the Gold (or plat) member can request an upgrade for both pax. "20.1.2 UpgradeMe Points flight upgrades can be redeemed by a Member for their own use or for the use of other guests. The Points used to redeem an UpgradeMe Points flight upgrade will be deducted from the Member’s Membership Account at the time of processing."
The final answer - yes.
