The province's largest public sector union, unveiled polling data this morning which indicates sweeping opposition to the provincial budget.
In the poll, 71 per cent of people polled oppose the budget, and 84 per cent of people said the government didn't do proper consultations.
Carol Furlong, president of the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Public and Private Employees (NAPE), said the government's budget cuts are misguided, and that Premier Kathy Dunderdale should revisit the budget decisions made in the past few months.
"It's how the people are feeling," Furlong said. "There should be a review."
