Defend Your Crowns Rally - January 28, 2016

posted Jan 23, 2017, 12:26 PM by Gail Sawatzky
Dear members,
 
This Saturday, the Saskatchewan NDP is mobilizing rallies across the province to galvanize public support for Crown Corporations. I urge you to participate. Attached to this email are small graphics you can share online as well as a poster for your workplace and community.
 
As you know, this fall the Sask Party government introduced legislation to facilitate the piecemeal privatization of Crown Corporations. By re-defining what constitutes “public ownership”, the government has cleared the way for up to 49% private ownership of the crowns.
 
This is unacceptable. Saskatchewan’s Crown Corporations are not Brad Wall’s to sell and Unifor is committed to fighting any sell-off of our great public assets into private hands.
 
In 2016 we were able to demonstrate the incredible value of SaskTel to the people of this province. That work continues and Unifor will be increasing our campaign efforts to mobilize public appreciation and support for what Crown Corporations have contributed to our province and the role they play in Saskatchewan’s future.
 
Public opinion is on our side, and Brad Wall knows it. Our job is to mobilize support and make our voices heard. I encourage you to join the campaign by contacting your local union president.
 
In solidarity,
 
Joie Warnock
Western Director
