Stewart also said the government would check how negotiations failed to improve their process in two years – the next time the collective agreement is under discussion. Comprehensive Collective Agreement – In discussion with its recommendations on March 31, 2016, Ready wrote: “During mediation, both parties worked hard to resolve their differences and reach an agreement on the renewal of their collective agreement to avoid an imminent strike. The government has now received Ready`s report and says it will form with the Northern Workers Union to “discuss the implementation of the new collective agreement.” Signing a five-year agreement provides some air to breathe before the two sides meet again to resume the process, Ready said. At the beginning of February, two more days of negotiations are proposed. A collective agreement has been reached between the Northern Workers Union (UNW) and the Government of the Northwest Territories. This agreement enters into force from April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2021. The bold highlight is the changes to the old collective agreement. The region also opposed the proposal for GWGs to receive a better wage increase than agricultural workers. In the case of GNWT, there are two types of wage increases: a gradual increase and an economic increase. “For each employee, this amount would vary depending on salary level and step, which would exclude any salary increase that would result from obtaining a promotion over a five-year period.” The region has made its latest offer of UNW adaptations “…

Problems related to humanitarian organizations, layoffs, mental health, extended parental leave and extended leave for survivors of domestic violence. “After two years without an increase, GWGs received a 1.6 percent increase for 2017-18, as described in the legislation,” the region said. Mr. Ready said he had tried to “repeat what the parties would have achieved in the negotiations if they were to freely negotiate a collective agreement with the application of economic sanctions such as strike or lockout.” In his report, Ready said it would be an “euphemism” to say that the negotiations are “difficult and sometimes controversial.” He said the two sides “worked hard” during the conciliation to resolve their differences, but that the discussions were “mainly met with some employment security issues, the duration of the agreement and economic increases.” The five-year contract – dated April 1, 2016, the date of the last one ` – provides that territorial government employees will not be increased in the first two years. “Negotiating a new collective agreement can be difficult under ideal conditions. The current fiscal and economic environment has been an additional challenge,” Finance Minister Robert C. McLeod said in the communication. A collective agreement has been reached between the Northern Workers Union (UNW) and the Government of the Northwest Territories. This agreement enters into force from April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2021. According to Ready`s summary of the positions of the pages contained in Monday`s document, the union was hoping for a four-year contract while the territory had argued for a five-year contract. The union did not give an interview on the agreement, but on Monday CBC received a memo on the union`s letter to its membership.
