Nova Scotia unions rally against Bill 148 at Province House in Halifax

The Nova Scotia Teachers Union hosted a rally in Halifax Wednesday evening in opposition to the controversial four-year wage package bill introduced by the McNeil government earlier this week.

Hundreds gathered for the rally, which members of other public sector unions also attended, started at 5 p.m. at Province House.

The crowd sang Twisted Sister’s We’re Not Going to Take It and held signs, some of which said “Respect teachers, respect bargaining.”

“The legislation, Bill 148, it’s a clear violation of my rights as a unionized member to negotiate and have fair collective bargaining, and I wanted to come down here and join with my brothers and sisters and make a very clear message to this government that they’re no going to get away with that,” said rally attendee Wally Fiander.
