From July 19 to 21, delegates from GNWT Locals met in Yellowknife for a Bargaining Conference.
During the conference, delegates presented the bargaining proposals put forward by their Locals, prioritized proposals, discussed collective agreement and employment concerns, and elected a bargaining team. Delegates will now go back and update their Local executives.
