Media Advisory: May Day Online Rally

For immediate release


Hundreds of workers will join forces to say: “No more preventable deaths. Time’s up for the Ford Government.”

Toronto, ON -  On Saturday, May 1, at 11:00 AM, hundreds of workers will join forces across Ontario to demand immediate action to address the growing crisis in workplaces across Ontario. 

The pandemic has made it clear that paid sick days, decent wages, and safe working conditions are a matter of life and death for all of us. Without action to improve labour law, workers cannot protect themselves, their families or their communities. 

At the online rally, workers will share heartbreaking stories that illustrate the realities of precarious, low-wage jobs and explain the steps our elected representatives must take to effect change.  

During the rally, we will also be receiving live reports from safely organized, in-person actions.

What: Online rally for decent work; workers sharing their actual experiences on the job, and why we need paid sick days, decent wages, and decent work for all

When: May 1 at 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
