Forty workers engage MPPs on Changing Workplaces and Precarious Work

TORONTO, Dec. 4, 2015 /CNW/ – Workers from across Ontario will be at Queen’s Park on Monday, December 7, and Tuesday, December 8, meeting with members of the Legislature to garner their support labour law and employment standards changes to address the increasingly precarious nature of work today.

“Contract work, irregular hours, holding down two or three part-time jobs to make ends meet – this is increasingly the reality for workers today, particularly young people,” said Ontario Regional Director Katha Fortier, who will lead the delegation of 40 workers.

“The legal framework around work in Ontario has not kept up with this fundamental shift.”

It’s the first substantive review in 20 years, since labour relations and employment standards were rolled back under the Harris government.
