Nova Scotia's projected surplus is now 12.1 million dollars a figure down five million from the razor thin surplus estimated in the April budget. finance Minister Randy Delorey says the government intends to stick to its plan to balance the books and that will guide contract negotiations with teachers and civil servants. NSGEU president Jason MacLean says the civil service union is looking for wage increases that are tied to the fiscal growth of the province. (MacLean says the union is prepared to fight to get back its public service award, a payout to long-serving civil servants upon their retirement. The Liberals froze the benefit in 2015 and say it would cost 40 million dollars a year to reinstate it across the provincial government.)
