Labour Relations Setback By Essential Workers Bill: Rick Clarke

Halifax area nurses have returned to work following their one day strike. This follows passage earlier today of essential workers legislation by members of the legislature, which essentially forced them back to work and to the bargaining table. Nova Scotia Federation of Labour President Rick Clarke tells CKBW & HANK-FM News, he's outraged by the attitude of the McNeil government which he says has setback labour relations in the province by decades.

As a result of the legislation passed this morning, HRM nurses will now be required to go back to the bargaining table with Capital Health to try and settle on a contract.
