Town hall meetings are taking place around Saskatchewan with a focus on the negative sides of privatizing of crown corporation’s.
The meetings are being held by the Saskatchewan Union COPE 397.
Kim Wilson President of COPE 397 said the main focus of the meetings is Bill 40.
“We are discussing the potential impact if Bill 40 is passed, which is changing the definition of privatization, the current government would be able to sell off 49 per-cent of a crown cooperation with out it being considered privatization and no referendum from the people of Saskatchewan,” Wilson said.
COPE 397 represents workers at SGI, the U of R’s faculty association and the Saskatchewan NDP provincial and caucus office staffers.
There will be a meeting in Regina on February 28 at the Italian Club beginning at 7:00 p.m. that evening.
