Bill 1 may only apply to health care workers in the District Health Authorities for now, but make no mistake that there are implications for all workers in Nova Scotia. The government is using the Bill to attack the NSGEU because we are a strong, effective union of working people.They are interfering with the collective bargaining process and skewing negotiations in favour of the employer.
After watching the video you will understand why it is so important that all members stand united against it and other attacks on labour and human rights.
