Unions to rally Wednesday to 'Save Our Services'

The President of the Nova Scotia Federation of Labour says a rally at province house this week will highlight concerns about health care, long-term care, education, and public services in general.

In a press release, Danny Cavanagh says the message at the Save Our Services rally will be loud and clear: a strong, united labour movement will fight to protect public services, with a call to government for a seat at the table to help problem solve.

Union leaders will speak on issues they and their members are facing.

The rally, running from noon to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, was announced last week by the Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union (NSGEU) following the latest provincial budget.

The NSGEU said the Liberals failed "once again to invest in essential resources to support our frontline healthcare workers and social workers."
