Budget Update: WAPSO Attends Standing Committee & JAEC Meetings

Thursday, December 5, 2013

The Standing Policy Committee on Protection and Community Services meeting to review the City's preliminary 2014 Budget was held today at City Hall.

WAPSO Executive attended the meeting.

The gallery was full as presenters opposing the 2014 Operating and Capital Budgets appeared before members of the Standing Committee. A significant amount of discussion took place regarding the mandatory furloughs, position deletions and their impacts on services to the citizenry. Additionally there was discussion on the budget consultation and development process, and its apparent need to be approved in “hurry up offence” haste.

Your Executive will continue to attend, participate and keep you updated.

WAPSO staff were in attendance at the Joint Alternative Employment Committee (JAEC) meetings held over the last two days.

In Solidarity.
