(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq)

TORONTO, April 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On May 1, International Workers' Day, the Ontario Federation of Labour is spearheading a province-wide mobilization to demand a workers-first agenda. Across Ontario, workers are gathering to ensure that issues that mean the most to working people and their families, are on the table in the June 2 provincial election.

Demands include:

  • A $20 minimum wage
  • Decent work
  • Repeal of Bill 124
  • Affordable housing
  • Permanent paid sick days
  • Well-funded public services
  • Livable income support for all
  • Climate justice
  • Status for all
  • An end to racism and oppression

After four years of attacks on workers, and two years of a pandemic that highlighted the cracks in our systems, over 20 actions are being organized across the province to demand better for Ontario.

Date: Sunday, May 1, 2022

Details: Province-wide action details can be found here

In Toronto, there will be a rally at 2:00 p.m. at Queen's Park. There will be over a dozen issue-specific feeder marches joining the rally. Details for the Toronto rally and march can be found here .
