Tell Ford: Hands off workers’ rights!

October 31, 2022

Doug Ford’s government is launching a full-frontal attack on basic labour freedoms in Ontario.

Education Minister Stephen Lecce wants to pull the plug on bargaining while it’s still underway and use legislation to forcibly impose a contract on education workers.

This is unacceptable.

The right to free and fair collective bargaining is a fundamental freedom, protected by the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Ford’s attack on education workers is an attack on all workers in Ontario. If he gets away with it, all other workers will face the same threat: contracts imposed by law instead of free collective bargaining. Protect the right to fight for good jobs, decent wages, and a better life.
