CEO’s workplace complaint against national chief part of ongoing investigation
The national chief of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) and its executive committee plan to present a united front during the December special chiefs assembly, starting today in Ottawa, but tensions continue behind the scenes and workplace complaints from both sides remain unresolved, according to sources.
Conflict engulfed the AFN’s last gathering, in July in Vancouver. The committee had temporarily suspended National Chief RoseAnne Archibald amid accusations of workplace bullying and harassment, until First Nations leaders at the Vancouver assembly voted to reinstate her.
Archibald, meanwhile, accused CEO Janice Ciavaglia of undermining her through collusion with those complainants, according to a July 4 briefing note, distributed by the executive committee, from the law firm Stockwoods Barristers.
