First Contract Arbitration Law Panned By Local MLA

The Nova Scotia government plans to bring in legislation that would amend the province’s contentious first contract arbitration law. The intent is to refine it, making it more palatable to companies and unions.
Argyle-Barrington MLA Chris d'Entremont and his fellow opposition Progressive Conservatives say what really is needed is for the law to be eliminated.

The N-D-P’s acting leader, Maureen MacDonald, says she’s disappointed the Liberals will revise the labour bill. MacDonald says she’s not aware of any business leaving the province because of first-contract arbitration.
