    Remembrance Day - November 11, 2018

    Sunday, November 11th is Remembrance Day. A single day ‘officially’ marked to remember the men and women who fought and fight for the freedoms that we enjoy on that day as well as the other 364 days of the year. This Remembrance Day specifically marks and honors 100 years since the Armistice and the end of WWI: ‘the war to end all wars.”
    The NEU asks all citizens of the great Territory of Nunavut to take a moment on Remembrance Day to recall, honor and recognize the unparalleled bravery of Canadian soldiers – past and present. We also ask that we all try to do our part each day to cherish and honor what these incredible individuals fought and fight for.

    365 days a year we need to pay respect to those who never returned home and those who did bearing the physical and psychological scars that afford us the daily freedoms we enjoy as Canadian citizens. 
    Please note that all NEU offices will be closed on Monday, November 12 to mark the solemn holiday of Remembrance Day and will reopen on Tuesday, November 13 at regular business hours.

    Fires in Iqaluit on November 8 - Thanks and Concerns

    The NEU would like to express our heartfelt gratitude and praise to all the firefighters, City of Iqaluit and GN workers as well as all other First Responders for their heroic efforts in battling the North Mart blaze as well as all the other fires that occurred overnight last night.

    We also encourage all residents of Iqaluit to consider their fellow residents while food shopping over the next few days as retailers plan their contingencies for any potential concerns over food shortages. Not all residents of this city are blessed with the ability to buy food and other essential supplies on any given day and may have to wait until their next pay cheque to ‘stock up’.

    The NEU would also like to extend their thoughts and well-wishes to anyone who may have been injured in their efforts fighting these unfortunate and concerning fires.

    About the Nunavut Employees Union (NEU)

    Our Members often ask what is the NEU/what do they do for me and who makes up my union? The shortest answer is that the NEU is a component of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and represents more than 4,200 workers working for Nunavut and the diverse communities that make up the Territory. The NEU formally came into existence in 1998 just before the official birth of the great Territory of Nunavut in 1999. Its roots in working for those that make Nunavut work dates back well before that as does Nunavut’s true history. For more information, or to access the NEU pamphlet
