A tentative agreement has been reached for employees of Evergreen Forestry Limited Partnership.
This agreement applies to Evergreen Forestry workers in Deh Gáh Got'ie First Nation (Fort Providence) and K’atl’odeeche First Nation (Hay River Reserve).
The agreement, if ratified by the membership, will by January, 2023, bring wages of Crew Leaders, Crew Members, and Tower Lookout Persons close to parity with firefighters employed by the Government of the Northwest Territories who do comparable work.
“We are very pleased that we were able to work with Evergreen Forestry to reach this deal, which will result in the firefighters at Evergreen getting the pay they deserve for the difficult, dangerous and critical work they do,” said Todd Parsons, President of the Union of Northern Workers.
