  • April 20 - Organize now for a decent work future

    The Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) and the Fight for $15 and Fairness are co-hosting online decent work organizing meetings every month.

    Thanks to your incredible effort, there is growing momentum for safe and healthy workplaces for all. From paid sick days to migrant justice, and from decent wages to safe schools, your actions are making a difference!

    Join the OFL and the Fight for $15 and Fairness on Tuesday, April 20, 2021, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. to mobilize for the month ahead.

    We use these meetings to organize for: 

    • Safe and healthy workplaces (Status for all workers; Employer-paid PPE; Social distancing at work and in all staff quarters; Employer-paid sick leave; Right to refuse unsafe work)
    • Employer-paid sick days for all (At least 7 paid sick days permanently, and an additional 14 days during health outbreaks)
    • Decent income for all (Extend CERB; Fix EI; Make pandemic pay permanent; Raise the minimum wage)
    • Strong communities (Food security; Affordable housing; Accessible public transit; Solidarity)

  • A People First Agenda: Help & Hope, A Health & Safety Discussion

    Tuesday April 27, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.


    In recognition of the National Day of Mourning, let’s talk about workplace health and safety, the human cost of COVID-19, and the groundwork we need to lay to ensure we have a government that prioritizes people over profit and does their job to protect workers so workers don't die doing their jobs.

    On Tuesday, April 27, 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., join the Ontario Federation of Labour for a Town Hall discussion on health and safety with NDP Health and Safety Critic Wayne Gates and NDP Labour Critic Peggy Sattler.

    MPPs Gates and Sattler will discuss the work they are doing to address worker health and safety issues (i.e., paid sick days, access to proper personal protection equipment, proactive frontline workplace inspections, workplace testing, full immigration status for migrant workers) and their initiatives going towards the 2022 provincial election.

    RSVP to get the zoom link.

    You can submit questions for MPPs Gates and Sattler in advance by emailing them to [email protected]
