AMAPCEO delivers its Budget priorities to Finance Minister

Publish date: Thursday, February 08, 2018 update

On Thursday, AMAPCEO Vice-President Cynthia Watt appeared at the Pre-Budget Consultations with Minister of Finance Charles Sousa in Whitby. There, she outlined the union’s priorities for the upcoming Ontario Budget:

  • fixing the Sunshine List by making it anonymous and adjusting it to inflation;
  • ceasing privatization initiatives; and
  • capitalizing on the opportunity to embrace the Community Benefits framework as outlined in the Long-Term Infrastructure Plan, especially through the Macdonald Block Reconstruction Project.

"Much of the [precarious work] crisis is of the government's own making,” Watt noted, “as we drive more and more towards privatized, low-wage, and temporary jobs.” She called on the government to bring more of its public services in-house, where civil servants deliver better outcomes for better value.

A full copy of AMAPCEO’s written Pre-Budget Submission will be available shortly.
