Greetings Sisters and Brothers,
The Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) is calling for a Day of Action on October 1, 2016 to demand the provincial government make Ontario’s labour and employment laws fair for all workers.
This Day of Action will see labour and community groups come together for a mass rally at Queen’s Park on October 1st.
The Ontario government is looking at overhauling labour laws in this province. This is an important opportunity to improve the basic working conditions of every single worker in Ontario.
The Labour movement and community organizations are lobbying for paid sick days for all workers in Ontario, as currently our province has no legislated mandatory paid sick days.
PSAC’s own healthy workplaces campaign has been fighting to protect our federal public service members’ sick days and it would be a major victory to extend paid sick days to every worker in Ontario.
PSAC's "Stop workplace violence" content aims to raise awareness about workplace violence and bullying in the workplace.
The following are concrete tools for workers and union leaders to identify and address workplace violence:
Currently, over 1500 people in Ontario are waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. Only 28% of Ontarians are registered donors, that’s 3.3 million out of an eligible 11.9 million people.
Registering online to be an organ donor takes only 2 minutes, with 1 organ donor being able to save up to 8 lives. By registering, you are giving hope to so many in need.
