Overworked, not paid enough and working in unsafe conditions, food workers at Nova Scotia Community College campuses in Dartmouth and Halifax set their minds on joining a union. Earlier this month the 25 or so Chartwells workers voted on joining the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 2. The vote hasn’t been counted yet, but workers and the union are confident they won. We talk with two workers and an SEIU organizer.

Seven unions will file to be added to the partial review of Bill 148 by the Nova Scotia Court of Appeal initiated by the Nova Scotia government. This was the announcement at this morning’s joint news conference, that also served to push back on the government’s narrative on the legislation.
