Back in the fall, you participated in the union’s Stop the Wage Freeze/Invest in Ontario campaign. You calculated how much Dalton McGuinty’s wage freeze will cost you and e-mailed the percentage loss to your MPP. You said that taking money from your pocket and donating it to wealthy corporations in the form of tax cuts won’t help create jobs or pay down the deficit. You told the government to invest in the public services and infrastructure projects that make Ontario stronger.
Our new campaign People for Corporate Tax Cuts uses humour to make the point that Ontario can’t afford corporate tax cuts. We’ve made quite a splash with our website, Facebook page, online ads and advertising in nine targeted ridings across Ontario.
Please help us get the word out to OPSEU members, their friends and families. We need them to:
Visit the website http://www.peopleforcorporatetaxcuts.ca/. Download the posters. Enter the contest to win $500. Share the videos.
“Like” our Facebook page, share it with their Facebook friends, join the discussions and stay up-to-date with what’s going on.
Follow our Twitter feed and Tweet about the campaign.
If you can, please print the attached posters and display them on your union bulletin boards. Alternatively, we can send you printed copies. Let us know how many you want and where to send them.
Our campaign has been widely reported on TV and radio news and discussed on current event shows. It’s been in newspapers around the province and praised on hundreds of blogs.
We’ve helped build and shape the debate about corporate tax cuts. We need to keep the momentum going.
Thank you for your help.
