UWSA addresses Ontario government wage caps

On May 3, 2019 Rose Vogt, UWSA President and Lawrence Folland, UWSA President-Elect attended a consultation process organized by Peter Bethlenfalvy, President of the Treasury Board.  The intention of the consultation with public sector employees and bargaining agents was to receive feedback and discuss “in good faith” on how to manage Ontario public sector compensation growth in a way that results in wage settlements that are modest, reasonable and sustainable.  The feedback was supposed to directly inform any next steps taken by the government to manage growth in compensation costs.
