The OFL's Make It Fair campaign takes on issues of inequality in the workforce, and coincides with the province's "Changing Workplaces Review." The campaign works toward across-the-board changes to the Employment Standards Act and the Labour Relations Act that would improve standards for every worker and make it easier for them to join a union.

The Make It Fair campaign works in solidarity with The Fight for $15 & Fairness, which is supported by community, labour, student and faith groups across Ontario and works for sweeping changes to employment and labour laws. Central in the campaign is the demand for a $15 minimum wage for all workers, regardless of age, student status, job or area of work. For more information, visit 15andfairness.org.
