Media Advisory - NBFL Media Scrum - NB Legislature

FREDERICTON, March 29, 2016 /CNW/ - Opposition to the government's planned modifications to provincial labour laws is growing. On Tuesday, at 1 pm, union members and leaders are expected to fill the observer's gallery at the Legislative Assembly in protest of upcoming wage suppression legislation.

The NBFL President, Patrick Colford will be available for a media scrum at 2:30, before the end of Tuesday's legislative session. He will be flanked by the leadership of several public and private sector unions. Fact sheets on upcoming changes will be handed out to elected representatives and to the public present.

"The government is generating a crisis in labour relations. By changing laws, the government wants to impose wage suppression on all New Brunswickers, working in both the private & public sectors," said Colford. "We stand united workers and job-seekers. The citizens of New Brunswick are not interested in becoming Canada's cheap-labour reserve!" he added.
