100,000 CUPE workers set to strike.

February 21st, 2006

That is one-hundred-thousand unionized workers in the province of Ontario working for the provincial and municipal governments. In a province with 12,541,410, there are 100,000 unionized public sector workers. That is 1 worker for every 125 people. Perhaps when Mr. McGuinty is done jailing Mr. Ryan and his cohorts, he may want to look at how many people there are on the payroll.

Edit: Toronto Sun today says it’s 120,000 CUPE workers – Closer to 1 worker for every 100 people. Add in the 120,000 teachers that Christina Blizzard says there are 1 worker for every 52 Ontarians, before you add in emergency service workers.
