Health workers support paid sick leave

Welcome to the Decent Work and Health Network. As health providers, our goal is to engage the health sector in the movement for decent work. We advocate for decent work because precarious work leads to poor health. We emerged out of a coalition between Health Providers Against Poverty (HPAP) and the Fight for $15 and Fairness Campaign. In the past year we have been working to influence Ontario’s Changing Workplaces Review, collecting over 900 signatures calling for seven paid sick days for every worker and the elimination of sick notes. If you are a health provider in Ontario, please join our network and help us win paid sick days, the elimination of the sick note, and decent work for all. To get involved, join health providers in an action on April 15, a Pan-Canadian Day of Action for $15 & Fairness, or participate a network of health providers in your city by contacting info@decentworkandhealth.org.

Learn more about the myths about paid sick days and the facts that bust them here. If you work in health, download and print the statement here, and ask your colleagues to sign it.

I want to sign the statement!
