LETTER TO THE EDITOR: GNWT refusal of arbitration irresponsible


From: Darren L. Linaker, Fort Smith

As a long-time GNWT employee I have watched with dismay the ongoing contract talks between the UNW and GNWT.

I am not directly involved with the negotiations, but am a union member.

Tuesday’s refusal of binding arbitration by the GNWT is the last straw.

Negotiations have been underway for 3 to 4 years with no results.

In my opinion the GNWT is behaving in a dangerous and irresponsible manner in dragging this situation on to an ultimate conclusion of strike action and potential chaos for the people of the NWT.
