YEU Convention Delegates Elect New Executive

The Yukon Employees' Union convened virtually for our Triennial Convention last week, after a year long COVID-19 delay. Delegates joined from their kitchen tables and home offices around the Territory to set the union's mandate for the next two years.

Incumbent President Steve Geick was acclaimed, while Vice President, Communities Tony Thomas will also serve another term.

Justin Lemphers joins YEU as Vice President. With 17 years of union experience, representing workers across the Yukon and multiple employers, he brings a wealth of community and political experience to Yukon Employees’ Union. You may see him in your Local meetings, delivering training, or facilitating workshop sessions. Justin is eager to get to work and learn more about your issues and workplaces.

The Component Executive is comprised of delegates from many professional backgrounds, and residing in Communities across the Yukon. Many are long time activists, while others are fairly new to union work. We are very happy to have such a strong and diverse board guiding our path and serving as liaisons between the union hall and the membership. There's a lot of work to do and they are all ready to roll up their sleeves and get to it.
