Unifor and Local 2002 are pleased to announce that members at Nasittuq Corporation – located at Canadian Forces Station Alert – have ratified a new three-year collective agreement by 67 per cent.
Following a virtual ratification meeting on November 15th, members voted in favour to advance their contract which provides overall improvements and gains, including enhancements to health and safety, paid educational leave, training, and duty premiums.
"Congratulations to members for ratifying this three-year contract," said Tammy Moore, Unifor Local 2002 President. "This was a difficult round of negotiations, but your Unifor bargaining committee remained determined throughout talks, even while negotiating in a pandemic."
The Unifor bargaining team would like to acknowledge the perseverance and dedication of the membership who remained vigilant as this contract was negotiated.
Unifor Local 2002 represents approximately 50 members that provide site-support services, food services, airfield operations, program management, and logistical and administrative support to the Canadian Government for the maintenance and operation of the Canadian Forces Station (CFS) Alert. CFS Alert is a military station located in Nunavut on the north-eastern tip of Ellesmere Island, Nunavut, and is located approximately 817 km from the North Pole.
