LONDON, Ontario, April 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On May 1, International Workers' Day, the London and District Labour Council is holding actions as part of the province-wide mobilization to demand a workers first agenda. Across Ontario, workers and community organizations are gathering to ensure that issues that mean the most to working people and their families, are heard loud and clear heading into the June 2 provincial election.

Demands include

  • A $20 minimum wage
  • Decent work
  • Repeal of Bill 124 and Bill 195
  • 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 Ford Government attacks on workers, and two years of a pandemic that highlighted the inequalities in our systems, this is one of over 20 actions being organized across the province to demand better for Ontario and a new Government.
