I am writing to you with an urgent request. Today and tomorrow are extremely important as the government is reviewing the Changing Workplaces Review final recommendations before making them public. The government will be debating possible changes that could help to make work fairer for all Ontarians. But this isn’t going to happen without pressure from us.
These recommendations are more than two years in the making. Unifor has been actively engaged in the Review, presenting at the consultations, reaching out to members, contacting and lobbying MPPs, organizing town hall meetings and much more.
Together, we can win increased access to a union; paid sick days; a $15 living wage; equal pay and benefits for equal work for all jobs and classifications, including part-time, temporary, contract, casual and seasonal workers and students; protections against contract flipping; removing all exemptions and loopholes from the Employment Standards and Labour Relations Acts and much more. (Click here for a summary of priorities or watch a short video on why this matters to Ontario workers.)
I am asking that you take five minutes to call and email your MPP, particularly if you live in a Liberal riding. It is very important that you act today. Click here to find your MPP or look up your elected official.
We have come this far and now we must ensure that we achieve the changes we need. Thank you in advance for your efforts!
Ontario Regional Director
