Union members from multiple unions banded together to defend the funding for public services and public workers in Canada. This was a national effort from coast to coast to coast across Canada as the federal spending cuts affect everyone. Peter MacKay claimed that he stood by our military as the Minister of Defense; but, he allowed and voted for cuts to military pensions, medical/dental/vision benefits, benefits for surviving family members of fallen military members and even cut funding for civilian service workers who keep the military properties operational. Federal funding cuts also affect search and rescue, fire departments, welfare and employment insurance benefits, education programs, safety inspection services and the list goes on. WE ARE ALL AFFECTED! Get out and do something. Your public services are under attack! Stand up! Fight back!
