As expected PM Useful Idiot is making the same deal with the Federal Public Service that his Thief and Mentor Wynne made with Ontario’s rapacious public service unions.

Liberal negotiations with civil service unions could reverse $900M in annual savings
The Liberal government has confirmed it will repeal Tory legislation that allows Ottawa to impose changes to short-term disability and sick leave in the public service.

Negotiations with federal public service unions are set to resume and sick leave benefits should remain a part of the discussions.

Less understood are the reasons for this gap, which has its origins in incentives, the public service culture of entitlement to superior benefits and the refusal of government unions to tell its members that the gap exists and is widening.
