On top of that our benefits has been CUT, not stayed the same, CUT. I'm pretty sure that this pattern is the norm for the private sector for the past couple of years.
Are you striking? how many months did you go without pay? lose one month of pay every 3 years and that's roughly equivalent to -3%. Toronto is looking to cut benefits as well so it looks like you are in the same boat as City employees.
