OPSEU lobby at Queen’s Park to end the privatization of government IT services attracts 40 MPPs including 4 cabinet ministers

Toronto (07 Nov. 2014) — Members of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU/NUPGE) who work in information technology across the province gathered at Queen’s Park on October 27 to tell MPPs to end the privatization of government IT services.

At the bargaining table and in public debate, NUPGE's top priority is now fighting privatization industry and its secret deals

"Wages are always important. But it’s now more important to make sure that every one of our contracts has clauses that protect public services, our members, and the public interest.  If privatization is being contemplated, we want to ensure that any proposals provide for complete transparency, public accountability, and meaningful public consultation before any service can be privatized," says NUPGE National President James Clancy.
