Let's go! Help us win $20 minimum wage and decent work

May 09, 2022

The Ontario provincial election campaign has begun. Thanks to you, a $20 minimum wage; 10 paid sick days; equal pay for part-time, contract and temp workers; real protections for gig workers; and measures to make it easier to join unions are all on the political agenda in this election.

But to win this fight, we must make sure every worker in Ontario has the tools to maximize the vote for decent work. In the next 4 weeks, we will be organizing phone banks, in-person outreach blitzes, street postering, and educationals so we can all elect decent work champions across Ontario on June 2.

We are counting on you to help make this happen. Here are 2 ways to build the fight:

1) Attend the next Justice for Workers organizing meeting this Tuesday, May 10 at 7:00 pm

At Tuesday’s organizing meeting, we will debrief about all our amazing actions across Ontario for the May 1 day of action. We can compare notes on where the parties stand on our key decent work demands and we'll launch our decent work election toolkit.

2) Fund the movement for decent work 

We’re going to be honest with you. We've spent a lot of resources making sure we had a great turnout for the May 1 province-wide day of action and to make sure decent work demands are front and centre in this election. We’ve trained hundreds of local organizers, hosted outreach blitzes across the province, made thousands of phone calls, distributed thousands of leaflets, produced hundreds of placards, shipped posters across Ontario, and published crucial backgrounders, including the primer on why decent work is a matter of racial justice. 

But we need your help to keep the pressure on. After all, no matter what happens on election day, our movement needs to be bigger and stronger for the fight ahead.

Will you please help us fund the fight for decent work?

Thanks to you, we have a real opportunity to make decent work a central issue in this campaign.
And with your help, I know we'll make it happen.
