Workplace changes are far from restoring balance for workers in Ontario

Workplace changes, announced by the Ontario government today, are a long way from rectifying the huge imbalance in our economy that continues to leave workers behind, says CUPE Ontario President Fred Hahn.

Thanks to the hard work of thousands of workers and advocates, the government has finally acknowledged that we have a serious problem in this province when it comes to workers’ rights and compensation, Hahn told a meeting of his Executive Board that is preparing for the union’s annual convention this week in Toronto.

“Today’s commitment to increasing the minimum wage at the end of the year is a great first step – now we just need to keep up the pressure to get them to enact the many other substantive changes workers really need,” Hahn said.
