The government also is projecting it will spend at least another $850-million in the current 2012-13 fiscal year on accumulated severance payouts (including for resignation and retirement) owed to federal employees as per collective agreements signed by successive governments over several years.

An abuse of tax-payers.
De-unionize public sector workers now.
Where's Margaret Thatcher when we need her?
