Act One is here.
skimber: Perhaps it’s time McNeil and Baillie stopped shilling for the powerful and spoke for the least powerful, including unorganized workers.
larochecbc: MLA’s getting blood pressures checked tomorrow. Is the middle of a filibuster really the best time to do this? I think not!
yaomifanma: FCA Legislation exists in most CDN jurisdictions. Trudeau passed it, Romanow passed it and even Mike Harris in ONT didn’t cut it.
MichaelBVickers: Trudeau rejected this type of FCA, Ont has a different version. Get facts correct.
yaomifanma: But you’re already forgetting McNeil-Baillie are against ALL types of FCA legislation, including Trudeau’s.
LiberalStaffer: Stats Can shows no crisis in Nova Scotia and Labour Minister admitted to stable labour relations.
yaomifanma: Opposition to FCA seems to either be “We hate unions” or “Why now?” Well, unions are just workers, and why wait for a crisis?
nspc: The NDP are pushing as hard as they can to pass a labour law that discourages job creation.
dwallbridge: What evidence do you have to support that claim? There was wide spread consultation including written submissions and open study day.
NSLiberal: Why are they introducing legislation for a problem that doesn’t exist?
dwallbridge: The opposition should go ask the employees of Scotia Recycling about the impact of a first contract strike.
alexboutilier: “If you want to carry a big stick, why not walk the walk, as they say,” – Allan MacMaster, on hour two of the hoisting of Bill 102 (FCA).
nspc: No one has publicly asked for FCA. So who has privately pushed the government to do this?
esooze: Shame on NSPC for wanting to postpone justice for workers. Workers are our wealth producers!
larochecbc: NS Libs will speak on “hoist” motion but do not support delay of bill 102 (FCA Legislation)
cameronmcraig: why wouldn’t the NS Liberal party join the NSPC debate on hoisting Bill 102?
LiberalStaffer: Because Liberals want to hear what the public thinks … Not the NSPC repeating the same message.
alexboutilier: Really hard to pay attention to the NSPC’s hoist of Bill 102 while the Green Bay-Detroit game is on in the Howe Room.
tony_tracy: First Contract Arbitration bill is a step in the right direction: Link
larochecbc: NS legislature has moved onto other business for the first time this week.
BigJMcC: Bill 102 has passed 2nd reading. NS about to come into current century of labour law.
