OFL #MakeItFair #DecentWork Campaign and Rally!!


It’s time to mobilize! If you haven’t heard, there are just two more sleeps left until the October 1st Rally for Decent Work at Queen’s Park, in Toronto.

A bus is leaving from 5167! Contact Barry to see about space!
Barry Conway, City Outside VP is 5167 contact: conway@cupe5167.org

On Saturday, thousands of Ontarians will unite to demand that the government Make It Fair and address the steep rise in precarious work across Ontario. Ontario needs to adapt its outdated employment laws to protect all workers.
This is a family-friendly event for community activists who want to Make It Fair for all, with face-painting for the kids.
Please help us spread the word on social media by tweeting some of the following:
• Provide 7 paid sick days a year so workers don’t have to choose between going to work sick and going broke #DecentWork #MakeItFair
• A family can’t live on today’s minimum wage. @Kathleen_Wynne we demand $15 an hour minimum. #DecentWork #15andFairness
• What do we want? Decent work! Join us October 1 at Queen’s Park. #MakeItFair #15andFairness ow.ly/sRVp304GGk4
If you can’t be at the rally, you can still participate online on Saturday by using #MakeItFair and #15andFairness and tweeting your thoughts and sharing from our Facebook page.
