CTF not impressed with PSAC’s demands.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says a labour dispute between the federal government and its biggest union will not be negotiated in public. In one of the largest strike actions in Canadian history, 155-thousand federal employees have walked off the job after the Public Service Alliance of Canada began a strike overnight. Canadian Taxpayers Federation is calling on the Trudeau government to reject what it calls the unaffordable and unsustainable demands put forth by the union. To discuss this in more detail is the federal director of the CTF, Franco Terrazzano, who joined us from Ottawa. According to the Treasury Board of Canada, PSAC is demanding up to 47 per cent compensation increases over three years which would cost taxpayers how much? Terrazzano explains in this interview with BCN’s Hal Roberts.
