"A Tim Hudak Ontario PC government will fix Ontario’s broken arbitration system by bringing more transparency and accountability, providing clear time frames, and ensuring that public sector agreements reflect the ability of families to pay the bills"
This today on the Progressive Conservative Party's web site.
Hudak added: “Arbitrators thumb their nose at the province and hand out rich wage increases to the public sector, while municipalities are forced to keep pace. The system is broken. A PC government will work with municipalities to fix it and ensure public sector contracts reflect Ontario families’ ability to pay.”
Hudak has taken some (modest) swipes at public sector workers before, but this is definitely another step on that road. Without the right to strike, hospital workers are required by law to settle contract disputes through interest arbitrations.
