We are weeks away from getting a $15 minimum wage in Ontario, which is scheduled by law to kick in on January 1, 2019. Under pressure by corporate lobby groups, the government has started talking about cancelling this increase, along with other new rights such as paid sick days, equal pay for equal work . We cannot let them take away these most basic protections while millions of workers depend on them. Join us at the October 15 Day of Action. Let's send a clear message to elected officials: Hands off our $15 minimum wage and fairer labour laws!
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.
