Labour dispute in Nunavik: Raglan Mine submits a new offer


Raglan Mine, a Glencore company, announced on Sunday that it has tabled a new offer to the union representing the 630 workers at its mine in Nuvanik, with the aim of renewing their collective agreement and ending the labor dispute . 

These employees, members of the USW local section 9449, have been on strike since May 27th. In a press release, Raglan Mine announced that this offer comes a few days after the union's decision to leave the negotiating table on July 7.

“We clearly have no failed to find common ground with the union representatives, but we sincerely hope that this offer can put an end to the labor dispute as quickly as possible,” said the vice-president of Raglan Mine, Pierre Barrette.


The largest employer in Nunavik considers the offer to be competitive.

“[The offer] is beneficial for all and allows Raglan Mine employees to obtain the best working conditions of the industry,” the company said.
