Nova Scotia labor standards code criticized by businessmen By JOHN SOOSAR HALIFAX (CP) Nova Sco- tia's Li beral governm cnt is under criticism from business- men and legislators over provi- sions of a comprehensive labor standards code, parts oE which have existed in individual stat- utes since the 1930s. Labor Minister Leonard Pace now is morn convinced than ever that the government was right in introducing the massive 54-page bill. "Maybe I was naive he s ays, but I 'm more than convinced now (hat the legisla- tion is absolutely necessary." The 70 per cent of Nova Sco- tia's labor force now unorganized will have a much better chance Hi an in the past under provisions of the code, he says. The business Mr. Pace says it is mainly "big business1' that has voiced stren- uous that the act will regulate them too se- verely. "We plead with you to make revisions now and not leave so much to regulations and ex- said the Nova Scotia section of the Canadian Manu- facturers Association presenta- tion. BILL UNCHANGED As the bil 1 moved through final stages of committee study Tuesday on its way back into the legislature, IvFr. Pace said the measure was basically in- tact and there was no change in its A key section of the code pro- vides for the establishment ol an employment standards tri- bunal charged with disposition of all complaints under its prov- isions. Other sections of the code pro- vide for maternity leave and guarantees of employment and benefits while prospective moth- ers are absent; raises the age at which a child is eligible for employment (o 16 from 14; spells out protection for workers seeking action through a direc- tor of labor standards, employ- ment standards tribunal or min- imum wage board; provides for vacation pay and lists five an- nual paid holidays; requires equal pay for equal work and sets out maximum working hours and regulations for termi- nation of employment. Mr. Pace says tho chief com- plaints have been about sections of the bill which have been in the statute books since 1955 and now are being included in one comprehensive act. The tribunal outlined in the bill was in exist- ence since 1000. MLAsCONCERNED While businesses have zeroed in on the main provisions of tho bill, government and opposition ML As have been concerned about its effects on small em- ployers, such as fanners. The minimum wage in urban areas now is SI.35 for males and Sl.20 for females. In rural areas it is for males and Cor females. The government proposes a province-wide minimum for both sexes of effective July 1 and a further 10 cents July 1, 1973. The minimum wage for un- der-age employees now is for males and B5 cents for The government wants a rate of for both sexes from July 1.
