The Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union (NSGEU) is the largest union in the province of Nova Scotia and is the recognized bargaining agent for 30,000 public and private sector employees.
Our members work in the civil service, school boards, universities, hospitals, liquor stores, correctional facilities, Regional Health Boards, municipalities, and other establishments across the Province.
The NSGEU is an active affiliate of the Nova Scotia Federation of Labour (NSFL), the National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) and the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC). Our founding convention was held in Halifax on April 18-19 1958. Ninety-seven delegates representing 13 divisions with occupational and regional representation passed the constitution and elected their first eight member executive, managers and supervisors who would most effectively represent them.
