NSTU president urges 'no' for community college staff decertification vote

The president of the Nova Scotia Teachers Union is urging Community College faculty and professional support members to vote "no" in an upcoming decertification vote.

Liette Doucet says she fully supports the right of educators to exercise their right to freedom of association.

But she says what's best for education across Nova Scotia is for the NSTU to remain as one, with community college members part of the organization.

The vote will begin on Friday and wrap up on Tuesday.
