MEDIA ADVISORY: Ontario Unions to Hold Emergency “Hands Off Workers’ Rights!” Rally

Don Mills, Ontario, CANADA


TORONTO, Nov. 01, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Tuesday, November 1 at 5:00 p.m., Ontario workers will hold an emergency rally in response to the Ford government’s attack on basic labour freedoms.

The Keeping Students in Class Act, introduced by Ford’s Conservatives, pulls the plug on bargaining with education workers and imposes an unreasonable four-year contract. The legislation short-circuits the bargaining process and strips workers of their Charter-protected right to strike.

Workers will gather at the Ministry of Labour in Toronto to defend the right to fight for public education, good jobs, decent wages, and a better life.

Date: Tuesday, November 1, 2022

Time: 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Location: Ministry of Labour, 400 University Avenue, Toronto, ON
