HALIFAX, Nov. 25, 2016 /CNW/ - The NSTU and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development met over two days this week with the help of conciliator to try and come to an agreement. The parties were unable to reach an agreement.
We are disappointed. Government invited us back to the bargaining table but remains unwilling to negotiate working conditions into our collective agreement.
Teachers have been crystal clear. They want real, concrete improvements to the system. They want to teach, not more empty promises and rhetoric.
Job action is likely on December 5, 2016. More information will be available in the upcoming week.
