Presentation: A new approach to outsourcing

12 February, 2014
PSI Canadian and United States affiliates gathered in Washington, D.C. on January 30, 2014 to discuss the attacks on labor rights in North America.

Blaine Rummel from AFSCME and In The Public Interest showed out effective messaging can bolster support for the public sector and heighten opposition to “out-sourcing,” as the best term to categorize privatization efforts.  Blaine explained in the United States context that messaging matters and registered voters are generally supportive of public services and public sector unions especially when “out-sourcing” threatens accountability, transparency, and democratic control over public services.
