CUPE PEI’s Analysis of the Government of PEI’s 2024-2025 Operating Budget

In Dec 2023, CUPE PEI made a pre-budget submission to the Government of PEI with our input on what we wanted to see in the 2024-2025 Operating Budget.

Our 5 overall recommendations were:
– Increase the real wages of workers who provide public services
– Implement new childcare spaces that are publicly-owned and operated
– Address the housing shortage and make housing a human right
– Expand pilot project of the Targeted Basic Income Guarantee (T-BIG)
– Make new investments in public services

Check out the link to the PDF below to see what we asked for in our pre-budget submission and our thoughts on what we see reflected in the actual budget document.
