Stand up for Saskatchewan Rally - May 24, 2017

posted May 16, 2017, 10:36 AM by Gail Sawatzky   [ updated Jul 28, 2017, 12:39 PM ]
Local 1-S will be joining SGEU and OwnIt Campaign to stand up and fight back against the initiatives this government have taken against the people of Saskatchewan.

Government has squandered the province’s finances on over-priced consultants, shady land deals, and costly megaprojects. Now it is trying to force Saskatchewan people to pay for their financial mistakes. Here’s just a few of the actions government is taking that will hurt Saskatchewan families and communities:
Demanding a 3.5 per cent public service cut
Firing government cleaners and contracting out their work
Privatizing public services in areas like Justice, Highways, food services in Correctional centres and young offender facilities
Selling off the Saskatchewan Transportation Company (STC)
Cutting funding to libraries, post-secondary institutes, municipalities
Raising sales taxes, which hurts low and middle income families most
Taxing kids clothes, and restaurant meals
All the while – giving away millions through new corporate tax cuts
The sale of any portion of SaskTel under the Bill 40 legislation
The sale of any of our Crown corporations
Join us to say ‘NO’ to government’s austerity agenda!
