Ontario government offers public servants contract extensions, 7.5% raises

Ontario is offering public servants a four-year contract extension with 7.5-per-cent raises, which would avoid possibly contentious bargaining before the next provincial election.

The approximately 35,500 public sector workers and correctional staff represented by the Ontario Public Service Employees Union are set to vote on ratification June 20-22.


The Liberal government also successfully offered two-year extensions to teachers and education workers that came with four-per-cent raises and more than $275 million in additional funding.

OPSEU president Warren (Smokey) Thomas says he suspects the extension offer to his members is related to the June 2018 election, noting his union hasn’t been shy about challenging the government in the past.

But, he says, the offer contains a number of positive changes with no demands of concessions for members, and no matter the motivation he’s looking for the best deal for the workers.

Premier Kathleen Wynne says for many years now, the government has only been able to offer public-sector workers small increases, but now the budget is balanced.


7.5% Is bribery legal?

Yup, that's bribery.

That's why as a member of a public employees union I oppose public employees unions.

Our managers are elected and we unfairly use our political power to influence our compensation packages at taxpayer expense.

I'd be okay with the union if it were forced to become non-political and stop making political donations of any kind to anyone.

But that won't happen because the incestuous relationship between union bosses and leftist politicians makes too many of these people rich and powerful. :|

Wynne isn't alone, there's also Christy Clark's unconfirmed bribes that fueled the Vancouver housing crisis.

Yes, and all parties do it.

Sad, but most Ontarians won't care.
