- March 21 – International Day for the Elimination of Racial DiscriminationThursday, March 21, 2019March 21st is the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Proclaimed as such in 1966 by the General Assembly of the United Nations, the 2019 theme of this day concentrates on the rising levels of supremacist and nationalist ideologies that often target immigrants and refugees. These dangerous ideologies falsely promote the idea that the ‘majority’ of a society are somehow superior to racial, religious or other identifiable minorities.The theme this year holds great significance considering the very recent terrorist and racially based killings in Christchurch, New Zealand. The cowardly attacks on Muslims in a sacred place of worship brought many Canadians back to January 2017 when a gunman killed six worshipers in a Quebec City mosque.New Zealand, like Canada is known and respected for being an inclusive and multicultural society and events like these are tragic reminders racism and extreme supremacist ideas exist everywhere.As a Union, it is the duty of the NEU to promote workplaces where Members work in environments of respect and that are free of racial discrimination of any kind. As citizens of Nunavut and Canada, it is the responsibility of each of us to do our individual and collective parts to see that we also live in a society that rejects and condemns all forms of racism, nationalist populism and supremacist ideologies.Read more

- About the Nunavut Employees Union (NEU)Friday, July 20, 2018
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 pamphletRead more
