October 1 Rally for Decent Work


What are you doing this Saturday? Some of the CUPE 1989 Library Warriors will be heading to Queen’s Park to call on the Government of Ontario to MAKE IT FAIR.

Ontario’s Employment Standards Act is woefully outdated and leaves most workers without protection. Knowing this, employers are able to exploit us, especially the most vulnerable workers like newcomers and those from racialized communities. Changes in the ESA are coming, and we want to make sure workers are at the table.

Join us on Saturday, October 1, as we raise our collective voice to demand:
– a $15/hour minimum wage,
– mandatory paid sick leave,
– respect at work,
– humane scheduling,
– and laws that protect everyone.

Union and nonunion, students and educators, full-time and part-time, young workers and experienced — we all have a stake in this. And we are #StrongerTogether!

For information on buses or to join an event, see the Make It Fair website. Hope to see you there.
