Yukon NDP Statement on Yukon Government walking away from negotiations with the Yukon Employees’ Union

Yukon NDP issued the following statement:

“It was disappointing to learn that the Yukon Government walked away from discussions with the Yukon Employees’ Union and declined to continue mediating a settlement.

As the largest employer in the territory, we expect the Yukon Government to lead by example and to provide their workers with the best possible working conditions.  

Many government employees are essential workers and are critical to the functioning of our territory. They deserve a fair contract for years to come.

We strongly encourage the Yukon Government to show good faith and work towards a successful outcome for all.”

Yukon Government employees have been without a contract since the end of 2021.
