The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAMAW) workers who normally perform aircraft refueling operations at the Montréal-Trudeau and Mirabel airports are on strike. These highly skilled workers who do dangerous, demanding and important work have been on strike since December 31, 2019 at 11:00 am (EST). The Executive and Staff of the Nunavut Employees Union (NEU) as well as the Executive and Staff of other Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) components will not be using the Montréal-Trudeau airport for travel or the Mirabel airport for cargo shipments. The NEU asks our Members, where possible, to avoid using the two Montreal airports until our Union Brothers and Sisters of IAM Local Lodge 2301 are offered – and accept – a fair deal from their employer.Read more

This is the sixth (and second for November 2019) Public Service Alliance of Canada-North (PSAC-North)/Nunavut Employees Union (NEU) Bargaining Update posted concerning the current round of bargaining with the Government of Nunavut (GN).Read more
The NEU is committed to keeping you informed on developments in bargaining and we will post updates like this when there is any further update to report.
Please note that if you are an active NEU Member working for the GN and are not receiving these updates directly via email it is most likely because we do not have a personal email on file for you. Due to the recent GN email issues, we are not sending email to GN Members using their work emails until the GN has completely restored all email and IT systems. Please email email@example.com to provide an email we can use for future updates as well as other communications as the current GN email situation underlines why it is important that we have a personal email for Members - where possible.
To access the most recent update (#6), PDF versions (in Inuktitut and English) as well as the Statement of Claim (English only as this is a legal document) filed in the Nunavut Court of Justice asserting that the Government of Nunavut (GN) has engaged in bad faith bargaining. please
- About the Nunavut Employees Union (NEU)Tuesday, November 19, 2019
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 about 4,900 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 pamphletRead more
