Cuts at the National Gallery Signal Public Service Cuts on the Horizon

Ottawa, Ontario – June 2, 2011 – The abolition of curator positions at the National Gallery foreshadow real threats to the future of public services in Canada, says the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC), the union which represents professionals and scientists in the public service.

PIPSC President Gary Corbett warned, “These cuts represent the tip of the iceberg. We are beginning to see signs that the government will resort to cutting jobs and public services in its quest to fight the deficit, without considering the long and short term effects of their actions. Cutting jobs means cutting programs and services to the public. To imagine that the private sector can take on the work done by public service employees is irresponsible and not feasible.”
