Nova Scotia Teachers Union Opposed Conciliation Board, Statement by Minister


NOTE: The following is a statement by Education and Early Childhood Development Minister Karen Casey.

Government agreed to convene a conciliation board regarding a contract for Nova Scotia teachers but the Nova Scotia Teachers’ Union declined that opportunity.

We maintain that we want to listen and work with teachers. We are committed to strengthening our education system for every student in our schools.

By declining this opportunity to convene a conciliation board, the teachers’ union is also dismissing the opportunity to find savings to meet their compensation demands.

Government continues to be open to discussing all issues related to working conditions outlined by the teachers’ union.

The working group looking at teachers’ working conditions will continue.
