The cuts will affect the safety of food, care for veterans, wait times at the border and environmental monitoring, among a number of other services, union leaders warned Wednesday, after at least 7,700 federal employees received notices that their jobs will be "affected" by billions of dollars in cuts to programs and services, according to Montreal Gazette. Not everyone who received notices Wednesday will be laid off; they could be shuffled to jobs within their unit, retrained or transferred to another department and front-line public services and government brain power are expected to take a big hit after thousands of federal civil servants were informed Wednesday that they could lose their jobs - an indication that many cuts won't be so-called back office administrative jobs. All told, the government says 19,200 jobs will be eliminated within the next three years as Ottawa cuts $5.2 billion in program spending. And even though the Conservative government has emphasized the majority of savings will be found in operations with a focus on "back office" administrative jobs, front-line services and programs can't be spared when the scale is this significant, union leaders said.
