OPSEU members to take their message to the public: Save ServiceOntario priorities: OPSEU

TORONTO – OPSEU members will use their lunch hour February 17 to distribute critical information outside ServiceOntario offices across the province.

The union is concerned that privatization will severely reduce Ontarians access to front line services. As well, OPSEU believes privatization will jeopardize the security of Ontarians’ personal information.

Finance Minister Dwight Duncan announced on Feb. 13 that the government will hand over ServiceOntario to a so-called “public-private partnership”.

Information pickets will take place in 25 communities across the province this Friday (see list attached). All times are 12 noon – 1 p.m. except where noted.

Further pickets are planned in the weeks ahead.
