Yesterday, Doug Ford’s Progressive Conservative government announced they intend to cancel recently introduced fair work laws, including the $15 minimum wage, paid sick days, equal pay for equal work, enhanced bargaining unit consolidation provisions, and fairer rules for joining a union.
This rollback legislation seeks to take away basic protections from those who need them most and represents a massive setback for precariously employed workers on our campuses.
Today, the campaign for $15 and Fairness will be rolling out emergency actions across Ontario.
It’s important that we all show up and send Doug Ford’s government the message that this legislation will hurt millions of workers across Ontario and that we will fight it every step of the way.
