Ontario workers bargaining rights are under attack by Premier Ford’s wage restraint law, Bill 124 which forces a 1% total compensation cap across the public sector in Ontario, including unionized and non-unionized workers, for any currently expired or expiring collective agreements. Many of the workers covered by this regressive legislation were at great personal risk and carried us through the worst of the pandemic. They will continue to deal with the post-pandemic fall-out for months and even years. We’re organizing a round of phone zaps to make sure our government representatives hear us loud and clear.
These phone zaps will be short collective actions where we will gather virtually for 45 minutes and make sure to make as many calls as possible during that time.
