Media Advisory: CUPE Ontario to call for jobs, pensions and tax fairness

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 16, 2011) - The next Ontario government must create jobs, protect pensions and end tax giveaways to corporations, says the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Ontario.

CUPE Ontario President Fred Hahn will bring his concerns to a Mississauga media conference on Monday, September 19. He will be joined by Jagmeet Singh, NDP Candidate for Bramalea-Gore-Malton.

WHAT: Media conference on the Ontario election
WHO: Fred Hahn, President, CUPE Ontario
Jagmeet Singh, NDP Candidate for Bramalea-Gore-Malton
WHEN: Monday, September 19, at 12:00 PM
WHERE: CUPE Peel Region Office, 259 Traders Blvd, Unit 11, Mississauga

The Ontario Liberals under Dalton McGuinty have not done enough to earn the support of working families. Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak has made it clear that a government under his leadership would further deregulate the economy and privatize public services.

CUPE Ontario is actively encouraging its members to support the NDP in the October 6 provincial election. In Bramalea-Gore-Malton, this means supporting Jagmeet Singh, a lawyer and long-time social justice advocate.
