Raglan employment up
At the Kiewit Nuvumiut Inc. construction company, there are 14 Inuit out of 37, for a total of 27.5 per cent of the workforce.
Kattiniq Transport and Bradley Nuvumiut, which are also joint-ventures, have no Inuit employees.
The total percentage of Inuit employment at the mine site now stands at about 20 per cent or one out of five employees.
At the council meeting, councillors requested a survey of Inuit working at the mine to evaluate relations between non-Inuit and Inuit. KRG’s Department of Employment, Training, Income Support and Childcare will carry out the survey.
