BELLEVILLE, ON, May 28 /CNW/ - Public sector workers will take their
message of 'working people are not the problem' straight to Ontario
Liberal party members and supporters at a fundraiser on Monday for
Prince Edward-Hastings MPP Leona Dombrowsky.
Date: Monday, May 31, 2010
Time: 4:45 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.
Belleville Ramada Inn Park Room, 11 Baybridge Road, Belleville
Finance Minister Dwight Duncan is a featured speaker at the fundraiser.
OPSEU members are protesting the recent Ontario budget which contained
serious attacks on the public sector.
"We want Leona Dombrowsky and Dwight Duncan to explain why their
government is giving away billion of dollars in tax breaks to
corporations at a time when public services are in rough shape," says
OPSEU Regional Vice-president, David Lundy. "And where is the fairness
in public sector managers raking in fat 'pay-for-performance' bonuses
when part-time workers who are earning barely $20,000 to $30,000 a year
will be taking a pay cut?"
Premier McGuinty's corporate tax cuts will cost Ontario $2.4 billlion
OPSEU activists have been protesting at Ontario Liberal Party
fundraising events since April 19, demanding the government invest in
public services and stop the corporate tax cuts.
