Workers Rally Against Broken Promises

Public Service workers rallied at Queen's Park on Nov. 27 to demand the rebuilding of public services and the restoration of workplace rights. The Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) says Dalton McGuinty has continued the cuts and privatization of the previous Conservative government though he was elected on a platform of restoring public services to Ontario and working with public service employees. Ontarians are still waiting for new money for child care, while students await their promised grants, assistance with loan repayments, need-based tuition waivers and more graduate-level scholarships. Union workers also protested privatization of medical services, education and energy.
