    WHY    The Ontario Government is threatening to eliminate the right of
           10,000 employees to be represented by their democratically elected
           bargaining agent. In 1994, AMAPCEO members overwhelmingly decided
           against being part of OPSEU. Now, the Government and OPSEU are
           considering a back room deal to eliminate AMAPCEO, and force
           AMAPCEO members to be represented by OPSEU. AMAPCEO is the second-
           largest bargaining agent in the Ontario Public Service,
           representing 10,000 professional and supervisory public servants
           who work directly for the Government of Ontario in every ministry
           and in a number of agencies, boards and commissions. During the
           past 15 years of AMAPCEO's existence, governments of all three
           political stripes have found AMAPCEO to be a professionally-run,
           practical, problem-solving bargaining agent. Further details
