The talks broke off today after three days of negotiations.

[HALIFAX, NS] — Conciliation talks between a union that represents health care workers and the health board that serves the Halifax and surrounding area have broken down.

The talks between the Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union Local 42, which represents about 3,500 health care workers, and the Capital Health District broke off today after three days of negotiations.

Both the union and Capital Health accused each other of refusing to budge on the issue of pay.

The conciliator is expected to file a report with the province's labour minister next week, at which point the clock ticks towards a strike that could begin as early as April 25.

Last month, 91 per cent of union members who cast ballots voted in favour of going on strike.
