Liberals must respect arbitrator’s decision

HALIFAX- Claudia Chender, NDP Education Spokesperson, made the following statement regarding the Liberals’ failure to respect an arbitrator’s decision on education specialists:

“The Liberals must immediately comply with the arbitrator's decision to reinstate education specialists as members of the NSTU. By dragging their heels, the McNeil government is breaking the law. Seeking a judicial review does not mean they can avoid complying with this decision in the meantime.
The Liberal government should be focused on supporting the education system, teachers and students, instead of picking fights with teachers at every opportunity.”
