Media Advisory: AMAPCEO's Releases Result of First-Ever Strike Vote

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - March 26, 2014) - The Ontario public service union, AMAPCEO, will disclose tomorrow the outcome of the historic strike vote by its OPS members.

AMAPCEO and its Employer, the Government of Ontario, began negotiations for a new Collective Agreement in February of this year. Government negotiators have made a mean-spirited series of demands that would result in devastating cuts, including to their members' health and wellness benefits, retiree benefits, sick leave, disability provisions and salary progression.

AMAPCEO has always considered the financial constraints of the government and it is willing to be reasonable at the bargaining table, but it insists public servants deserve fairness. These proposed cuts pose real hardships for employees and Ontario families, and members have said enough is enough.

Find out how the provincial government wants to slash AMAPCEO provisions including health and wellness benefits.

When: 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 27, 2014
Where: Media Studio, Queen's Park
