Unifor mobilizes to make Ontario election count


Organizing for the Ontario provincial election campaign starts today with Unifor’s 2018 member-to-member Make it Count Ontario election campaign.

Workers in the province have built a solid foundation of political action, uniting in coalitions that have pressured the government to finally introduce a $15 per hour minimum wage and free preschool child care, and to address the chronic under funding of hospitals. All of this progress is at risk of being rolled back if Doug Ford’s conservatives take power.

“There is too much at stake in this election not to take action,” said Jerry Dias, National President. “We must stop the conservatives and show the next government that Unifor members will be heard.”

One way to be heard, said Dias and Ontario Regional Director, Naureen Rizvi is to sign the pledge to vote on the new election website uniforvotes.ca. If you’re a Unifor member from Ontario and you want to keep pushing for social justice in this province for workers and families it’s time to get active, said Rizvi
