The head of one of the province’s largest public sector unions is calling for an all-party debate so party leaders can set out their plans for privatization of public services. In a letter to Liberal leader Kathleen Wynne, PC leader Tim Hudak, New Democratic leader Andrea Horwath and Green Party leader Mike Schreiner, Warren “Smokey” Thomas, the head of the Ontario Public Service Employees’ Union that represents 130,000 public sector workers, said it’s time for all leaders to come clean on their plans for contracting out public services.
