Last week the NEU President Doug Workman and the RVP for Baffin Central, Jeannie Mike, held GN membership information meetings in Pangnirtung and Clyde River, returning to Iqaluit in time for QEC mediation which is scheduled to take place from April 17th to 20th 2012.
There are no scheduled GN information sessions this week, however, lobbying with the MLAs has begun in earnest. The purpose of these lobbying meetings is to highlight the abuse of contract employment in the Nunavut Government and to link this to current negotiations. We will update you with the results of these lobbying sessions as they occur.
So far meetings have been scheduled with Monica Ell (Baffin Central); Moses Aupaluktuq (Baker Lake) and Ron Elliott (Grise Fiord, Resolute and Arctic Bay).
If your MLA isn't listed you should asked yourself (and them) why not and let us know if you want to be part of the team that goes to visit them!
