Federal public service unions not satisfied with Trudeau government’s first budget

Though the government says it wants to improve services, PSAC says without more staff, ‘the services are simply not going to be there.’

PSAC national executive vice-president Chris Aylward, left, said there are a number of things he would have like to have seen addressed more specifically in the budget, such as whether the government intends to roll back tens of thousands of job cuts made under the former Conservative government. The office of Treasury Board President Scott Brison highlighted several budget items it said are positive for the federal public service.Photograph courtesy of PSAC/The Hill Times photograph by Jake Wright
