PSAC North members have been encountering tough labour practices by communities across the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut, leading to strikes in fort Smith, Hay River and potential job action at Nunavut’s Qulliq Power Corporation. Zero per cent wage offers have been the norm, with considerable efforts being invested to educate the public about the danger of such poor treatment of Northern workers. Read more in my REVP report.

Hay River councillors need to take a lesson in fair bargaining from recent settlements of labour negotiations in Yellowknife and Fort Smith, say the leaders of the Union of Northern Workers (UNW) and Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC). In Yellowknife, conciliation talks and fair-minded bargaining averted a strike of workers at Avens—A Community for Seniors. While strike action was necessary in Fort Smith, respectful negotiations with an employer willing to end the dispute resulted in a fair settlement for workers at the Fort Smith Housing Authority.
