This week, Members of Provincial Parliament are making key decisions about the future of decent work in Ontario. We must contact our MPPs to show support for decent work that works for families and brings all Ontarians out of poverty.
Significant changes to labour laws can reduce poverty in Ontario. Tell your MPP you support changes such as:
- Boosting minimum wage to $15/hour
- Providing 7 paid sick days
- Ensuring equal pay for part-time temporary and contract workers
- Better rights for temp agency workers
- Advanced schedules
- The right to unionize and respect at work.
Contact your MPP to support #15andFairness

We have heard in the news that the government is deciding on labour law reform this week. We support changes that will make jobs across Ontario decent and give all Ontarians protection from abuse.
We want you to support: $15 minimum wage, 7 paid sick days, equal pay for part-time temporary and contract workers, better rights for temp agency workers, advanced schedules, the right to unionize and respect at work.
Making paid work a pathway out of poverty is critical in ending child and family poverty across the province. We need poverty free wages and better working conditions. We need you to support decent work in our community and across the province.
Tweet your MPP with this message:
