Iqaluit prepares for union talks
The city of Iqaluit’s administration is preparing for talks with its unionized workers on a new collective agreement in the New Year.
The city’s chief administrative officer, Ian Fremantle, will spend three days in Yellowknife with his director of finance and human resources officer to meet with the city’s lawyers, from Jan. 11 to Jan 13.
The subject of their meeting is the collective agreement with city workers, signed in August 2003 and set to expire at the end of June 2006.
“As you know, at any time between May and June we could be put on notice by PSAC,” Fremantle said during a Dec. 13 council meeting.
“We’ll be going through from cover to cover with solicitors in Yellowknife to make sure we’re ready.”
