Nova Scotia brings in law to impose wage deal on 75,000 public workers

The Nova Scotia government is imposing a financial settlement on 75,000 public servants that will see their wages frozen for the next two years.

Legislation bringing in the wage settlement, which does not apply to judges and medical residents, would see public workers get a one-per-cent raise in the third year, 1.5 per cent at the start and 0.5 per cent at the end of the fourth year.

The financial settlement is the same as a deal recently rejected by the province’s 9,000 teachers, which caused one of the province’s largest public-sector unions to delay a ratification vote until mid-January.
