It took a second ballot but members of the Nova Scotia Teachers Union (NSTU) have picked their new president.

Peter Day has been elected to the top job after receiving 60.6 per cent of the vote in the second ballot held yesterday.

The first-round ballot on May 15 did not result in a clear winner producing a run-off between Day and Shawn Hanifen.

A candidate must receive a majority of votes or 50 percent plus one in order to be made president.

According to the NSTU, Day has been a dedicated teacher for 22 years and is currently a technology mentor for the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional Centre for Education.

He has taught Grades three to 12 across various schools in the Strait and Cape Breton-Victoria regions

Peter Day will take over the position of NSTU president on August 1, 2024 replacing Ryan Lutes who has served as in that role since August 1, 2022.
