Creating new NS health care unions.

On Friday Health Minister Leo Glavine fired the arbitrator he had hired -- to sort out which union would represent which category of worker in the health care system. But the arbitrator - James Dorsey - had other ideas. Friday he awarded one category to the Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union -- or NSGEU.
But he held off on assigning the other three... He said more work needed to be done to determine who should represent them.That's when the Liberals said they were giving him the boot.But today Dorsey was still on the job -- and he issued another order, giving second category to the same union. The NSGEU.
Our legislature reporter Jean Laroche is here to explain what's going on.
