Back to Work Legislation Delayed
Premier Danny Williams has confirmed that debate on the government's back to work legislation has been delayed. Williams says he met NAPE's Leo Puddister on the parking lot of a service station in Mount Pearl last night. He made a presentation to Puddister on sick leave and asked him to consider it overnight. Williams says he was in touch with Puddister this morning and was told the proposal was turned down. He says debate on Bill 18 has been postponed until monday because they are in the process of continuing negotiations.
