As you are likely aware, this round of negotiations has been unique and challenging for the NSGEU. With the looming threat of wage restraint through Bill 148, the NSTU dispute and regular school shut down periods, it has been difficult to schedule dates to meet with the Employer at the Bargaining table.
Your Committee exchanged proposals with the Employer on April 7, 2016 and met with the Employer on April 5, 6 and 7, 2017, where we were able to make some progress. We are hopeful to confirm more dates soon.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact a member of your bargaining committee*.
