When the Victorian Order of Nurses (VON) rolled out a new national payroll system in January, “everything that could go wrong went wrong” said Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union (NSGEU) president Joan Jessome.

About 600 employees represented by the NSGEU weren’t getting the right pay for months.

For some this meant serious complications including trouble paying bills, said Jessome.
