According to David Jackson in the Chronicle Herald Fridaym it looks like it's going over like a lead balloon with the staff. Surprise!
"Joan Jessome, president of the Nova Scotia Government & General Employees Union, said 35 affected people who went to a meeting Thursday night said they don’t want to move.
She said about three-quarters of the affected workers she’s heard from don’t want to go, including most people in the Fisheries Department."
Come hell or high water, the NDP is going to force this ill-conceived idea through. Going to be no cost savings either, since staff that wont go will likely be shuffled elsewhere meaning that the departments will have to hire new employees.
"About 100 civil service jobs are moving to different parts of the province, whether or not the workers want to go with them, deputy premier Frank Corbett said Friday.
“We’ve made our mind up that we’re going to consolidate that work,” Corbett said at Province House. “If they don’t want to go, we’ll try our best to find them places in the civil service.”
