NEW election toolkit!
Thanks to you, we have a opportunity to VOTE on June 2nd for a $20 minimum wage, 10 paid sick days, equal pay-for-equal work and so much more. But it’s still a race against the clock to make sure everyone has the information they need to make their vote count.
Ontario Election Toolkit for Decent Work
The Ontario Election Toolkit has all you need to organize in your community.
Get your candidate to pledge to be a decent work champion. If you know your local candidate is a decent work champion, ask them to make it public so we can spread the word. Your candidate can pledge their support using our online form.
Here’s a sample tweet to invite your candidate to take the pledge:
Hey [insert candidate twitter handle]. I know you’re a #DecentWork champion that supports:You can also print a paper copy of the pledge and take it to your candidate’s election office.
✅ $20 min wage
✅ 10 paid sick days
✅ Equal pay for part-time, contract & temp workers
✅ $500/wk in income for ALL! Including: OW & ODSP

We have the momentum!
Since we published our toolkit last week, another political party came out firmly supporting a $20 minimum wage and other decent work demands. It shows our demands are not only viable and necessary, but popular.
But there’s no guarantee that our issues will prevail unless we keep organizing. We have only 19 days left to elect as many decent work champions as possible. But with your help, I know we'll get it done.
