May - Nova Scotia public employees granted bargaining rights

Date: 
May 5, 1978
Nova Scotia was the last provincial government to grant collective bargaining rights to public employees with the proclamation of hen the Civil Service Collective Bargaining Act. The Act was and continues to be flawed in that it denies government workers the right to strike. The only other provinces that deny government workers the right to strike are Alberta and PEI.
