Mobilizing Mondays – Week Two
On March 27, the Ontario government released an austerity budget that includes billions of dollars in public service cuts. It is a budget that will kill jobs, gut public services and hurt communities. We need to tell our MPPs that they must amend the budget.
This is the second Mobilizing Monday. Every week, we will send you three simple actions you can take to help protect public services and get Ontario the budget it deserves. If you can, please do all three, and encourage your friends and family to do the same.
Visit budget.messageyourmpp.ca and enter your address to automatically send your MPP an email. You can do this even if you have visited the site and sent a message before. A new message will be posted every week.
Email five friends or family members and ask them to also go to budget.messageyourmpp.ca. The more emails MPPs get, the more likely they are to push to remove the worst cuts from the budget.
Also share the link with your followers and friends on Twitter and Facebook!
Call your MPP’s constituency office and request a meeting to discuss the budget. You can find a lobby guide with information to help you with this meeting at cupe.on.ca/budget. Let CUPE Ontario and your district council know so that we can help you prepare and track which MPPs are getting these requests.
