    Air North strike action

    SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Air North flight attendants begin a job action today to limit their services to only those essential to the safe and timely operation of passenger flights.

    No flight delays are expected, but no in-flight food or beverage services will be offered.

    Flight attendants with Yukon-based air carrier Air North have been certified with the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) since February, 2013. In a PSAC press release, the PSAC stated they had been at the bargaining table with Air North for close to a year.

    Bargaining between the union and Air North began on Oct. 13, 2013. Despite conciliatory bargaining over the summer, flight attendants filed a 72-hour strike notice last Friday.

    According to the union, outstanding issues in this first collective agreement include scheduling, wages, and fully paid vacation and sick leave.

    Geoscience forum wants you

    SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The 42nd annual Yellowknife Geoscience forum will be in Yellowknife this Nov. 25 to 27, and organizers are calling for abstracts.

    Specifically, the forum is seeking presentations on geoscience and environmental science research and geoscience-related presentations for its technical program.

    Topics might included petroleum in Canada’s North, diamonds, exploration, community engagement and education, or regulatory and policy updates.

    Full details as well as a sample abstract can be found at www.nwtgeoscience.ca/forum/

    Abstract submissions will be received from Oct. 1 to Oct. 26

    Yellowknife chamber of commerce gala

    SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - The first annual Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce business award gala will take place on Oct. 24 at the Explorer Hotel. The event will replace the AGM and President’s Ball, so this is your chance to get out and network with other Yellowknife chamber members, or to catch up on the year that was.

    The gala begins at 6:30 p.m., with entertainment provided by Wake up Hazel. For more information or for tickets, contact the Yellowknife Chamber of Commerce.
