Nova Scotia's largest public sector union is delaying a vote on a tentative contract with the province after teachers rejected their agreement. Joan Jessome, president of the Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union, says the ratification vote that was scheduled for this week won't be held until the bargaining committee consults with union members. Jessome says she recommended acceptance of the deal because she believes the government would legislate a settlement otherwise. (The teachers turned down the tentative contract yesterday. It offered a wage increase of three per cent over four years, but also included a wage freeze in the first two years.)
