Wage Freeze (not). OPSEU announces more action

OPSEU (the Ontario Public Service Employees Union) is planning an August 19th protest near Ottawa: Tell Premier Dalton McGuinty: Wage cuts, corporate tax cuts and under-funding public services hurts Ontario!     The protest will take place at a Liberal fundraiser at (where else) a golf club . The protest starts at 6 am.  Donations will be accepted for the Champions for Children Foundation of the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa.

OPSEU has also announced that their very recent Youth Employment Services settlement includes a signing bonus of $250 for every employee, a 2% raise in the second year of the agreement and improvements in health and welfare, including $300 for eye care. Sounds like some good work.
