The LCBO generates $2.5 billion annually, funding vital sectors like healthcare, education, and public transit. However, with the push to hand over the alcohol market to grocery and convenience store chains like Loblaws and Circle K, we're seeing a dangerous diversion of public revenue into corporate profits. This shift not only jeopardizes public funds but also threatens to cut jobs and drive down wages and working conditions for LCBO employees.

The ongoing strike by LCBO workers is a crucial stand against these detrimental changes. Their fight is not just about fair wages and decent working conditions; it's about ensuring that these essential jobs remain for future generations and that we continue to have the necessary funds for our public services. Reduced funding for public services leads to fewer staff and deteriorating service quality across the board.

Join us on the picket line to support LCBO workers in their fight for fair treatment and to ensure that our public services remain robust and well-funded. Your presence matters—let's show our collective strength and commitment to protecting our community resources.
