BREAKING: 📢 @AndreaHorwath commits to $20 min wage! “After @FordNation cancelled $15 min wage & froze it for 2 years, frontline essential workers in #ONpoli fell even further behind. It's time for $20. NDP plan is practical and predictable." -Pam Frache, #Justice4Workers 1/2 ⬇️
REMINDER: Ford voted against permanent employer-provided #PaidSickDays that cover all illnesses and injuries 26 times.
Temporarily extending his 3 paid sick days plan that only covers COVID is the least he could do.
Covid cases are on the rise in Ontario. Still, many workers do not have #PaidSickDays, hence people go to work sick. Instead, we have Bill 124 which targets female-dominated professions. Thank you @NewsguyNick@Jennifer_Hsiung@CP24 for the coverage.
Medical professionals and public health experts have been clear -- sick notes "delay recovery" and create unnecessary barriers.
Workers need seamless, adequate #PaidSickDays. Let's not overcomplicate this.
The Federal Bill for 10 #PaidSickDays for federal workers is set to arrive by 2022.
There is a provision that allows employers to seek sick notes to access time off. Sick notes delay recovery, is unnecessary and a waste of everyone’s time.
Remove this provision. Trust workers.
