CBC reporting OCT inspectors to lose jobs

November 26, 2021

More than 30 inspectors who enforce credentials in the skilled trades have received layoff notices as a result of a decision by Premier Doug Ford’s government, CBC News has learned. The layoff notices went out last week to inspectors in the compliance and enforcement section of the Ontario College of Trades (OCOT), the agency that licenses tradespeople such as electricians, plumbers, auto mechanics and hairstylists.

    Government employees?
    Time and time again, the enforcement squad told us they worked for us, not the government. Even the head of enforcement, (Bob Onlyshuck) stood in a room at our local HRAI meeting and stated that he was not a government employee. So now we find out they are members of CUPE, and are crying the blues about Mr Ford lying about not laying off government employees. Pick a lane people, are you or were you government employees, or were you people lying to us this whole time?
