Fredericton (14 Feb. 2017) — The budget tabled by the provincial government in February did not address important topics relevant to the members, says the New Brunswick Union (NBU/NUPGE). The union was hoping the budget would include details regarding the extra-mural program, support for workers and consultation with labour on a variety of issues.

"We were hoping to hear some definitive plans, but unfortunately we're left with more questions than answers," said Susie Proulx-Daigle, President of the NBU/NUPGE.
