In his report, Ready said it would be an “euphemism” to say that the negotiations are “difficult and sometimes controversial.” He said the two sides “worked hard” during the conciliation to resolve their differences, but that the discussions were “mainly met with some employment security issues, the duration of the agreement and economic increases.” Stewart also said the government would check how negotiations failed to improve their process in two years – the next time the collective agreement is under discussion. “Negotiating a new collective agreement can be difficult under ideal conditions. The current fiscal and economic environment has been an additional challenge,” Finance Minister Robert C. McLeod said in the communication. After years of dispute that nearly led to a general strike in February, the Government of the Northwest Territories and the union, which represents about 4,000 employees, have a new collective agreement. The union did not give an interview on the agreement, but on Monday CBC received a memo on the union`s letter to its membership. It says, “There are a few areas where the union needs clarification,” without specifying what those areas are. The memo also stated that a meeting of members would be held in the “coming weeks” to discuss the agreement. The government has now received Ready`s report and says it will form with the Northern Workers Union to “discuss the implementation of the new collective agreement.” To avoid a government strike, the Northern Workers Union and the territory government agreed that they would consider Ombudsman Vince Ready`s recommendations to be binding. A collective agreement has been reached between the Northern Workers Union (UNW) and the Government of the Northwest Territories. This agreement enters into force from April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2021. UMW offers a variety of accommodations conveniently located for its lively students. Residence Life and Housing is now accepting applications for the spring 2021 mandate.

The audacious climax refers to the changes to the previous collective agreement. “It was a difficult process,” Stewart said. “I hope we will be in a better place again if we are ready to start the next round of negotiations.” Students who submit a housing and spring meal contract by that date will be included in the first set of spring housing contracts, depending on their availability.
