The NSGEU’s Civil Service Union Negotiating Committee is scheduling more bargaining dates in the New Year with the Employer after two days at the bargaining table failed to produce a tentative agreement.
“It is unfortunate we couldn’t get a deal at the table over the last two days,” says Jason MacLean, President of the Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union. “The Employer’s position remains far apart from ours and we want them to come back to the table after the holidays with a more reasonable position so we have a chance of reaching an agreement.”
No new dates have been confirmed as yet.
There are over 7300 members of the NSGEU who work in the Civil Service providing a vast array of important public services. They work in Access Nova Scotia centres, child welfare, corrections, the courts, education, finance, inspections, wildlife, fisheries, mining, tourism, and forestry – just to name a few.
