Government wrong to reject request for external mediator

November 9, 2016


For immediate release.

HALIFAX – NDP Leader Gary Burrill is criticizing today’s decision by the Minister of Labour to not appoint an external mediator in the labour dispute between the provincial government and teachers.

“Twice, teachers have offered a new path to come to a solution to the current impasse with government and twice Stephen McNeil and his government have refused,” said Burrill. “The Liberal government seems to have endless amounts of time to belittle teachers in the media, but zero time for actually negotiating with teachers to find a solution.”
