OPS Campaign: Service Ontario - Choose Public


Questions for Bob

April 16, 2012

For all of our ServiceOntario brothers and sisters who have an opportunity to attend a “Town Hall Meeting” or a “Breakfast with Bob” event, here a couple of questions you may want to ask Mr. Stark.

ServiceOntario currently has about 2400 employees. How many employees will ServiceOntario have in two years?

If I have a job with ServiceOntario two years from now, who will be my employer?

Many of us are at an age where retirement planning is a priority. If I have a job with ServiceOntario two years from now, will I have a pension plan?

The cost of postsecondary education has increased by 35% in the last five years. Many of us are paying for or saving for our children’s education. If I have a job with ServiceOntario two years from now, how will my future income compare to my present income?

OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas has sent a letter to the Premier calling for the withdrawal of the section of the government’s budget bill that will privatize ServiceOntario. Please share this letter with your colleagues and post it in your work place. Please email your MPP and let them know that giving up annual revenues of $2.7 billion by privatizing ServiceOntario must count as one of the most short sighted and potentially dangerous decisions a government has ever made.
