Dear ASPA Members and Colleagues,
The Saskatchewan Government Employees Union is calling all public sector union members in this province to a labour rally at the Provincial Legislature on March 8, at noon.
The purpose of the rally is to draw attention to detrimental consequences of reducing investments in the public sector, including education, health, social services, and infrastructure.
There is an expectation that public sector workers, which includes us, should sacrifice to balance the budget even though public employees have not been a major contributor to rising government expenditures. (Government to blame for the deficit crisis, Saskatoon StarPhoenix, Feb. 13, 2017)
Please review the supplied rally poster to find out details about the event. We hope that many of you are interested, wiling, and able to join the event. If you can, please consider attending the rally.
