Doug Ford's PC government says it wants to cancel the $15 minimum wage and roll back all of the Bill 148 labour law reforms. That includes paid sick days for all workers, equal pay for equal work, fairer schedules laws, and much more. Ontario workers are expecting a $15 minimum wage on January 1st 2019. We are ready and organized to defend the rights what we won, and push for more.
Join $15 and Fairness UofT for the province-wide Day of Action on October 15th! We will be petitioning and leafletting in front of Sid Smith (east side) from 11:15 AM-12:15 PM. We'll have some games/prizes, free food, and some great discussions about fair wages and working conditions with UofT students and staff.
Afterwards, we'll all head together to the Day of Action rally in front of the Ministry of Labour at 12:30 PM to defend our labour rights: https://www.facebook.com/events/251715398866409/
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.
