#WorkersCompIsARight December Week Of Action

Join us for a province-wide week of action from December 10th to the 14th, and take a stand for fairness for injured workers! We’re kicking the week off in Toronto with a rally on Monday December 10 at 11:30am outside the Ministry of Labour.

This year, the conservative government and WSIB have been the Grinch trying to steal workers’ compensation. They’ve teamed up to give employers a $1.5 billion gift, in the form of a massive reduction to their premium rates – that’s the money that’s needed to provide compensation for people who need it. Meanwhile, injured workers are struggling with poverty and homelessness.

Doug Ford’s promise of being “for the little guy” rings hollow in the face of this reality. And as we’ve seen from the government attacks on workers across the board, the “Ontario open for business” slogan really means they want to open workers to exploitation.

Well, we won’t stand for that. We’ve got a province-wide week of action to say “Workers’ Comp Is A Right”, and “injured workers need Real Healthcare!”
