With Doug Ford as Ontario’s next premier, leading a conservative majority government, decent work and workers’ rights must be defended. An overwhelming majority of Ontarians support a $15 an hour minimum wage, but this government ran on a platform attacking it. Now is the time to mobilize our defense for workers.
All locals and members of Unifor are strongly encouraged to join us in Toronto at this rally, and to bring large contingents wherever possible. This is our first chance to show the newly-elected government that workers remain united in Ontario, and that any attack on workers’ rights will not be tolerated.
What: Rally for Decent Work
Where: 400 University Avenue, Toronto (then Marching to Queen’s Park)
When: Saturday, June 16, 2018 at 1:00 p.m.
Doug Ford must serve workers as premier, not corporate bosses. That means standing by the progress made in Bill 148, as well as pay equity, health and safety, and the right to join a union.
