- NEU 9th Triennial Convention November 6-8, 2023 Aqsarniit Hotel, IqaluitMonday, June 26, 2023
This is the call for the Ninth Triennial Convention of the Nunavut Employees Union (NEU), which will take place at the Aqsarniit Hotel in Iqaluit November 6-8, 2023.
What happens at NEU conventions? The NEU Triennial Convention is where Union Delegates from across Nunavut debate and adopt resolutions and budgets that direct how the Union will spend its money and decide what priorities we should pursue until the next convention. It is the supreme governing body of the Union. All the decisions made at the Convention are done through voting by the Delegates in attendance. To ensure that members are well-represented, Delegates are elected by their Locals. Every Local has the right to elect Delegates based on the number of members in good standing. It is important that every Local send Delegates to make sure voices from across Nunavut are heard. Each Local is also entitled to send resolutions to the Convention. Please see the Call for Resolutions for more information (For the Inuktitut version). Rules and procedures for the NEU Triennial Convention, including delegate entitlement, are set by NEU Bylaw 13.

- Support IHA Workers - ADD YOUR VOICE to Public Calls For a Fair DealFriday, April 7, 2023UPDATE AUGUST 1: IHA Workers Vote to Ratify New Collective Agreement: NEU members who work for the Iqaluit Housing Authority have been on strike since the middle of March (more than 100 days now). These workers, mostly young Inuit parents, are fighting for wages that keep pace with inflation in the exorbitantly expensive northern economy.They are fighting to maintain working conditions that are the norm in other parts of the country – things like maternity leave provisions, vacation leave, and personal leave. They are fighting for respect and dignity in the face of bargaining that is often tinged with racism and sexism.In the meantime, the employer has brought in replacement workers. These scab labourers from southern Canada, are getting paid more, and are being provided with housing and food allowances and benefits that striking workers have never had access to.It’s time for Minister of Labour Seamus O’Regan and the federal government to step in and halt the use of scab labour in the Iqaluit Housing Authority strike.
