In 1978 the Civil Service Collective Bargaining Act was passed and the Civil Service Arbitration Board and Civil Service Joint Council replaced by a new integrated Civil Service Employee Relations Board. The Board was an administrative tribunal which operated as a labour relations board for Government employees. The Board, whose decisions were final and binding, could decide whether a person was an employee; whether the parties to a dispute had settled the terms and conditions to be included in a collective agreement; whether a collective agreement had been entered into; whether a person was bound by a collective agreement; whether a collective agreement was in effect; whether a person practised his profession as a condition of employment; whether there had been every reasonable effort to conclude a collective agreement; and whether the Public Service Commission or the Nova Scotia Government Employees Union was guilty of an unfair labour practice. In 2010 the new integrated Labour Board assumed the functions of the Civil Service Employee Relations Board, and the latter was abolished.
