Nova Scotia government’s wage package deal passes

The Nova Scotia government has passed a controversial wage package bill after another marathon overnight sitting.

MLAs wrapped the debate shortly after 6 a.m. Friday. The vote happened about an hour and a half later with 30 to 14 in favour of Bill 148.

This marked the third night this week MLAs have been called to sit starting at midnight.

Bill 148 is the provincial government’s plan to impose a four-year wage package on Nova Scotia’s 75,000 public servants.
