JLP Workshops in Iqaluit, Nunavut

JLP Regional Field Coordinators (RFCs), Teresa Morgan and Ryan Winger traveled to Iqaluit, Nunavut from November 15 to 23. The following three workshops were delivered: Understanding the Collective Agreement, Mental Health in the Workplace and Labour-Management Consultation.

The trip was a success!  Not only were the workshops well received, but the RFCs were also able to attend the Nunavut Federal Council and meet with various union executives to promote the JLP.  A great deal was learned about the culture and some of the challenges, unique to the North, that are experienced by departments and individuals.

Iqaluit is a small and tight-knit community and while the weather was cold, the people were quite warm and welcoming.  The JLP looks forward to ongoing collaboration with our partners in the North.
