Cape Breton Post - - PROVINCE -

HAL­I­FAX — A vote on the lat­est con­tract of­fer for Nova Sco­tia teach­ers has been post­poned by a day due to bad weather. The Nova Sco­tia Teach­ers Union says in a state­ment that the vote will be held on­line from 6 a.m. un­til 8 p.m. to­day. It says mem­bers will be in­formed of the results fol­low­ing the vote. Union mem­bers have twice re­jected con­tract agree­ments rec­om­mended by the union ex­ec­u­tive and voted over­whelm­ingly in favour of a strike. They be­gan a work-to-rule cam­paign on Dec. 5 that had a sweep­ing ef­fect on school life across Nova Sco­tia, can­celling shows, trips and sports. They had started phas­ing out the cam­paign, fol­low­ing the ten­ta­tive deal but then re­in­stated it.
