OCC sends letter to Premier Wynne regarding interest arbitration

    Ontario Chamber of Commerce releases an open letter to Premier Wynne addressing deficiencies in the arbitration system

    On February 28, 2017, the Ontario Chamber of Commerce (OCC) sent an open letter to Premier Wynne regarding Ontario’s interest arbitration system.

    While the OCC and our member network greatly value the contributions and protections that emergency services personnel provide to our communities, we recognize that the costs of these services have increased at over three times the rate of inflation annually since 2002.

    The letter highlights that the cost escalation resulting from settlements is unsustainable, particularly in an era of fiscal restraint in which municipalities are greatly restricted in their options to generate new revenue.

    Read the letter.
