🚀 Countdown to June 3 Day of Action! Let's get organizing!
Whether it's cancelling paid sick days and cutting off uninsured persons from accessing medical treatment, or whether it's cutting education funding while opening the door to for-profit health care, it's clear this government is not working for workers – it's working for corporations.
Indeed, with every passing day, this government is showing us we can't afford to fight alone and must unite our struggles into a strong and powerful movement. The June 3 Day of Action to say Enough is Enough gives us an opportunity to do just that.
That's why Justice for Workers is sending you a special invitation to join Tuesday's online provincial organizing meeting (April 11 at 7:00 pm ET).
At the meeting, we'll be discussing all the different ways you can help build momentum for June 3. Together, we can support workers from child care to post-secondary education and from warehouses to farm work, but we need to bring these fights together for the provincial day of action to really show our strength. After all, decent work for everyone is central to strong public services, healthy communities, and a thriving economy.
Make no mistake: It's going to be a hard fight.
June 3 is just one step of many that we'll need to take together. But what we do to organize for June 3 will set the table for what is possible in the weeks afterward. That's why we need you–and every fighter for justice–to plug in and help spread the word.
All out for June 3!
Saturday, June 3 is less than eight weeks away!
We want to mobilize the largest possible numbers across Ontario. To do that, we need to nail down the time and location of local actions as soon as possible and use every available minute to spread the word.
We are encouraging Justice for Workers fighters like you to organize contingents for local actions, whether that is identifying a spot to meet before joining a larger demonstration or whether that means working with other groups to ensure there's a strong Enough Is Enough action in your community on June 3.
Mass leafletting on May 1
If every region and community had the time and location of their June 3 event nailed down before May 1, then the May 1 mass outreach actions could be used to promote local events. Those hosting May Day celebrations could have materials printed and ready to distribute; postering runs and leafletting sessions could be organized on the spot.
Plan your outreach activities now
But if we don't get moving now, we won't be ready to spread the word on May 1. As soon as we get the local time and location nailed down, we need to create promotional materials and map out a regular routine of outreach and action, to hand out leaflets, put up posters promoting the June 3 event, and get more folks signed up to the campaign.
New organizing tools: ready to download & print!
To support your local organizing, Justice for Workers has produced new customizable leaflets to download and print. You can update the content of these leaflets to include local events and actions. Click here to see all the printable resources available for local organizing.
We have also co-branded Justice for Workers / Enough Is Enough sign-up sheets so you can follow up and get new fighters plugged into local events immediately after they sign up. Take this sign-up sheet with you everywhere you go, from picket lines to protests. Let's not miss a single opportunity to organize the fight.
Remember: the Resources page of the Justice for Workers website is your toolkit for taking action and organizing your communities. If you are planning a local outreach, check out our tip sheet for organizing successful outreach events.

If you're part of a local event, action, or rally in your community that's not listed here, please email the deets to us at [email protected] so we can add it to the website and help spread the word!
Hope to see you at the provincial organizing meeting on Tuesday at 7:00 pm or at an upcoming local event!
