CUPE members taking part in the PEI government’s program review may pull out over concerns that the process is designed to sugar-coat privatization.

And while Premier Pat Binns claims job cuts and privatization aren’t on the agenda, he also says he won’t rule them out.

CUPE staff rep Bill McKinnon said CUPE members won’t be “willing participants” in the government’s plan.

McKinnon said the premier could solve the problem by guaranteeing that no publicly funded, publicly provided service would be privatized.

The results of the program review are expected March 15, 2005.
