From OPSEU President Warren (Smokey) Thomas, introducing “Vote Better” OPSEU’s platform for the upcoming provincial election.
Welcome to this sneak peak of Vote Better, OPSEU’s platform for the upcoming provincial election.
OPSEU isn’t running for office … so why do we have a platform?
The answer is simple. As a union of front-line workers, we are experts on public services.
We’ve seen without own eyes the incredible good that strong public services can do: the lives saved, the children protected, the economies built, and the communities strengthened.
And we’ve also seen with our own eyes the incredible damage that is done when our public services are starved, cut, and privatized.
We know what works, and we know what doesn’t work. And the upcoming election is a golden opportunity for us to share our insights with voters and candidates.
That’s what our platform is all about: showing Ontario that if we vote better, we’ll do better.
We’ll be launching the full platform on May 8 with an exciting and interactive electronic town hall debate.
