Possible Home Care Strike Sparks Emergency Legislature Session

An emergency session of the Nova Scotia Legislature is ahead for tomorrow. MLA's have been recalled to debate possible back to work legislation for home support workers. 450 home care workers can hit the picket lines at 12:01 tomorrow morning (Friday). Opposition Leader Jamie Baillie tells us: labour situations like this could be avoided.

The home care workers care for almost two-thousand people in the Halifax area and in parts of the Annapolis Valley.
