Canada’s largest public sector union to hold day of action Saturday

September 15, 2012

Thousands are expected at nationwide rallies Saturday — as members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada fight planned cuts.

New Democrat MP Kennedy Stewart says local rallies are planned for Vancouver and Surrey.

“Speaking out really against the public sector service cuts that we’ve been having, really that the Harper government’s been inflicting on us since they came to office with a majority last May.”

Those include cuts to the Coast Guard, Canadian Food Inspection Agency, and scientific research.

The alliance is Canada’s largest public-sector union.
