NSGEU labour pains

More labour trouble for the McNeil Government.

NSGEU President Jason MacLean says a tentative contract, reached over a year ago; has now been rejected by 94% of the local members.

MacLean is urging the government to return to the bargaining table, saying that deal was reached under duress because the government was threatening to legislate a contract.

Finance Minister Randy Delorey says the offer was fair and was based on what the province can afford.
