This week the NEU President and the RVP for Kivalliq South met with NEU members in Churchill, Arviat and Baker Lake. That is right; we have NEU members in Churchill, Manitoba who work for the Department of H&SS. We also have H & SS members working in Winnipeg.

As was the case with other community visits the presentations included:

  • An overview of what has occurred to date
  • GN's Final Offer & NEU's Mediation Offer & GN's costing of NEU's proposal
  • What to Consider & What Next?
  • Section 42 Public Service Act reviewed

GN has agreed to an April 5th meeting date for further discussions/negotiations on the Essential Services Agreement (ESA). NEU is expecting to hear back from GN's on the Union's counter offers on essential service positions for H&SS and Justice / Corrections, as well as review Education ESA proposals. In addition we require further clarification for the ESA as to the use of casuals and contractors during a strike.
