Ontario Budget 2012 – Take Action

Resist austerity!

The Drummond Report proposed a dangerous austerity agenda that would kill thousands of good jobs and put the brakes on Ontario’s economic recovery. Here are ways you can resist austerity and press the government for a budget that will build the economy and put Ontario back to work:

  • Write to and call your local media: People need to know how the Drummond cuts would affect you and your community. As you read about the cuts, think about how they will affect you, your family, your community, the people you help through your work, or Ontario more broadly. CUPE Ontario rejects the austerity agenda and favours a budget that will build the economy and create good jobs.

    Write to newspapers and call radio and TV talk shows 


  • Share this information: As you learn about how the budget will affect you and your community, share what you learn with friends, family and co-workers. In addition to conversations, share information through your Local and on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.


  • Sign up for the CUPE Ontario e-newsletter: Get the latest news and find out what we can do together in your community to support good jobs and push back against a dangerous economic plan.
