AMAPCEO Launches Provincial Tour in Sudbury to Develop Action Plan

SUDBURY, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jan. 26, 2015) - Newly elected AMAPCEO President, Dave Bulmer, who represents 12,000 professional public sector employees, is in Sudbury to launch provincial tour and engage members about how to defend public services.

While travelling to cities across Ontario, AMAPCEO members will have the opportunity to meet and converse with the President about the future direction of the Association. The tour is just one of the initiatives underway to build a strategic plan to tackle the government's risky public-private partnership schemes, austerity budgeting and the ongoing attacks on good paying, unionized jobs that help build the local economy in Sudbury and all across Ontario.

"It is a short-sighted and fundamental blunder of politicians who continue to target public services in Sudbury or in any community around the province." said President Dave Bulmer. He added "we need to consider new ways to expose this flawed, illogical approach to defend local economies."

Tour stops pose a single question asking members, "To combat the erosion of good jobs and Ontario's great public services, what should your AMAPCEO do in 2015?" Members in attendance are encouraged to raise issues and ideas about the work they do in the public service, its role in the local community and how best AMAPCEO should respond to protect public services. After each meeting members will continue the dialogue on-line by including the #MyAMAPCEO hashtag on twitter posts.

With the opportunity to engage members directly about next steps, Bulmer says "This tour is about building our AMAPCEO community, an empowering community of rank and file members who will act to defend public services, unionized jobs and workers' rights."
