Holding closed-door meetings to launch attacks on some of the most precarious city workers is disrespectful to the people of Windsor.
During public consultations the people of Windsor were clear – they do not want care taking services contracted out. Repackaging a contracting out motion to make it appear to protect full-time jobs, but really just endangering the jobs of part-time workers, is cynical politics at it’s worst.
Strong public services are vital to a healthy community. The people of Windsor know this. I urge city councillors to listen to their constituents and put this contracting out scheme to rest once and for all.
