Members Vote to Ratify New Collective Agreement

Extraordinary attendance was observed at contract ratification meetings held across the Yukon last week. After today’s ballot count, we can say that Yukon Government workers have voted overwhelmingly to accept the tentative deal, ratifying their new contract.

This Collective Agreement, retroactive to January 1, 2022, will be in effect until December 31, 2024. Yukon Employees’ Union and the Public Service Alliance of Canada represent this bargaining unit, numbering approximately 3500 members. Read Media Release


Important Update: Revised Work-Site Visit Procedures

Effective immediately, work-site visits for Local Y017 members will be limited to ten to fifteen minutes, prioritizing prompt information dissemination through Union Boards.
