The Nova Scotia Teachers Union is hosting a two-hour telephone Town Hall meeting on Tuesday, September 27 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. to answer questions about the Tentative Agreement prior to the ratification vote, which will take place on October 4.

NSTU president Liette Doucet, staff negotiator Jack MacLeod, and legal counsel Ron Pink will be on hand to answer questions. If you indicated on your NSTU Member Data Sheet that the NSTU could share your phone number with a company contracted to provide telephone town hall services, you will receive advance notice/reminder call of this Town Hall in a telephone message this weekend.

These NSTU Member Data Sheets were distributed to you via your NSTU representative following Provincial Negotiations regional meetings that took place June 14 and 15. All you have to do to participate is answer the phone when we call on Tuesday, September 27 at 7:00 p.m. If you are unable to answer the phone at this time, information will be left in a voicemail to access the Town Hall. During the Town Hall, you will be able to ask questions.

If you want to submit questions by email in advance of the meeting, you can do so. Send your questions to townhall@nstu.ca. Emails will be accepted starting at 12:00 p.m. on Monday, September 26 until 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 27.
