The government is in the process of further contracting out all home support services in Nova Scotia.

Today, there are more than 20 companies providing home support services in the province. The NSGEU represents approximately 1,900 home support workers and schedulers working for 11 of these companies, which are private non-profits.

Our concern is that, if a new company (or companies) are selected to deliver all Nova Scotia’s home support services, and your current company loses its contract, you do not have the right to follow your job. This means that – if the new company decides to hire you – they can pay you a lot less and not offer you any of the benefits you have today.

We need you to send government a very strong message: tell them that in the event that another company is selected to deliver home support services, you will NOT accept employment with this new company unless your union and contract stay with you!

Please sign the pledge. We need to show the government that home support workers will stand up for their hard-fought rights and benefits.

Also, if you’re in the Dartmouth area and would like to sign a pledge, you can stop into the NSGEU office (255 John Savage Avenue) during business hours, and sign one at the front desk.

If you have any questions or concerns about the pledge, contact the NSGEU by calling 902-424-4063 (toll-free 1-877-556-7438).
