OFL Seeks Employment Opinions

(WINDSOR, ON) – The Ontario government is in the process of reviewing labour laws in the province. To help, the Ontario Federation of Labour is inviting Ontario’s workers to a scheduled a telephone town hall tomorrow at 7:00pm.

According to the Federation, the province, in its Changing Workplaces Review, has an opportunity to make sure that workers are protected under the Employment Standards Act and the Labour Relations Act.

“Our employment and labour laws are outdated and do not reflect the reality of work in today’s economy,” said OFL president Chris Buckley. “The rise in insecure work leaves millions of workers struggling to make ends meet and this situation will only get worse if strong action is not taken quickly.”

The Federation believes workers have a crucial window to provide comments to the province before its review of labour legislation is finalized in the spring.

“This review is going to make a difference to all workers in Ontario, whether they are part of a union or not,” said Buckley. “We need to make sure that all MPPs know what they can do to stop the rise of precarious work and ensure that every job in Ontario is a decent job.”

Those interested in participating should register in advance.
