Come to a rally on October 15th outside the Ministry of Labour at 400 University at 12:30pm to defend labour rights and the $15 minimum wage. Organized by the Labour Council in partnership with the United Steelworkers, this is an opportunity to send a loud message to the Minister of Labour (and Queen's Park) that Ontario needs to keep strong labour and employment laws. Doug Ford's government has said that it will stop the minimum wage increase to $15 (scheduled for Jan 1, 2019) and roll back other key pieces of the hard won Bill148. It took the labour movement over a decade to get the minimum wage raise, emergency leave, scheduling rights etc. We cannot lose it all to a regressive agenda from Queen's Park. Bring everyone you know out to this important rally!

Take urgent action for $15 and decent work laws!
The $15 minimum wage and decent work legislation, such as paid sick days, equal pay rules and laws to make it easier to join a union, are all up for grabs. The minimum wage increase is currently scheduled to come into effect on January 1, 2019. Now more than ever, we need to continue to campaign to keep it from the hands of the big business lobby.
Join us on October 15 for our province-wide day of action by signing up below and tell Doug Ford: Hands Off Workers’ Rights!
EMERGENCY RESPONSE: When legislation is tabled, take the same plan you have made for October 15, and do it the day AFTER the legislation is tabled. Keep it simple.
