Justice for Workers Organizing Meeting
On Sunday, education workers gave notice that, if the Ontario government doesn’t address the crisis in education, these workers will have no choice but to take job action on Friday, November 4th. But it’s not too late to avoid a strike. Premier Ford & Education Minister Lecce have have the resources to fund education properly & end the staffing crisis. Now is the time to raise our voices and make sure that education workers are not alone in this fight.
If you are in the Greater Toronto Area, join us for this in-person organizing meeting. You can load up on solidarity supplies and we’ll share all the latest news we have, redouble our solidarity effort, and do our best to support every worker fighting for better work & wages!
Doors open at 5:30 pm and we'll have snacks available. Meeting starts at 6:00 pm.
Let's remember: over the last four years, Ford’s Conservatives have cut funding for schools by $800 per student (adjusted for inflation). In 2021-22, cuts totalled $1.6 billion. These cuts result in poor ventilation, inadequate cleaning and overcrowded classrooms. During the COVID pandemic, our schools weren’t safe for students and Ontario experienced more school closures than anywhere else in Canada.
Education workers are fed up with the underfunding of Ontario’s education system and the undervaluing of the workers that make the system run. It simply can't continue this way. That’s why education workers have concluded they have no other choice than to take job action, should collective bargaining fail to fix the problems.
Don't miss this important meeting to build solidarity for every worker fighting for decent work and wages, and please bring a friend or co-worker to the meeting.
