New UNW Headquarters

Construction is underway on the new home of the Union of Northern Workers

Located at 53rd Street next to Mildred Hall School, the new building overlooks Frame Lake, City Hall and the Legislative Assembly.

The 4-storey, 35,000 square foot office building is scheduled to open at the beginning of 2016. Construction began in July 2014.

The UNW is owner and developer. The new facility will house not only the UNW’s corporate offices. Co-location of the NWT offices of the Public Service Alliance Canada North and the Northern Territories Federation of Labour will gather these labour organizations under one roof.  Stantec Ltd. will be the major commercial tenant, occupying a full floor of the building.

The building was designed by Stantec Ltd.  Clark Builders is the construction contractor.

The UNW facilities will include Executive offices, board and meeting rooms, training facilities, as well as library, interview and full reception areas.  Announcements on the naming of the new building, and updates on construction, will be coming throughout 2015.

The Union of Northern Workers is proud of this new investment in our capital city.
