CUPE Local 79's Views on the City of Toronto 2010 Budget

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 19, 2010) - Economist Hugh Mackenzie, in a press conference this morning, laid out an excellent analysis of the larger issues and overarching challenges facing the City of Toronto and pointing out the numerous ways in which the City (and the Province) have failed to respond in the long-term best interests of Torontonians.

As far as CUPE Local 79's particular situation is concerned, there is the possibility that a number of our members, though not large, may be detrimentally impacted. We will be monitoring the situation very carefully in the weeks and months to come and will defend the interests of our members whenever necessary, and in every way possible.

CUPE Local 79 is the largest municipal union local in Canada representing more than 18,000 full and part-time employees of the City of Toronto, the Toronto Community Housing Corporation, and Bridgepoint Hospital.
