Earlier today, members of the Higgs government have condemned CUPE workers for travelling to Fredericton to protest outside the legislature.

Mackenzie Thomason, Leader of the NB NDP responded to the condemnation moments after the news became public stating: “The Government wants to blame CUPE for defying the circuit breaker, however if the Government actually cared about the circuit breaker, they would have done an online sitting of the legislature.”

The NB NDP is standing with Mackenzie and CUPE NB members in support for their right to strike.

In Solidarity.
