ACDC Bargaining Update - Tentative Agreement

Arctic Canadian Diamond Company (Ekati)
Nov 07, 2022

After months of working at the bargaining table, your bargaining team has come to an agreement with the employer. We made some significant steps forward and fought off the employer’s biggest concessions.  

We believe that this is the best deal that we could negotiate at the table without taking steps towards a strike. We will have a full package of all the changes for you to see well before ratification votes take place. 

We thank all members for their support throughout this long process. We believe that we have made some significant improvements and that members should have the chance to vote on this agreement.

Please keep an eye on your email and the onsite Union bulletin board for notices about upcoming ratification vote meetings. As always, you can reach out to a member of your bargaining team if you would like more information.

In Solidarity,

Your bargaining team:

Craig Black
Nagidhe Paulette
Sheila Warren
Seth Sazant, PSAC Negotiator
Gayla Thunstrom, UNW President
Melvin Larocque, UNW 1st VP
