Did you know that in Ontario employers are not required to provide paid sick days?
And that employers with fewer than 50 workers can legally fire someone for taking an unpaid sick day? This has to stop!
Today, Thursday November 19, people across Ontario are emailing and tweeting Premier Kathleen Wynne, Minister of Health Eric Hoskins, and Minister of Labour Kevin Flynn to ask them to legislate paid sick days for all workers.
Here’s what you can do:
Email the Premier, Minister of Health and Minister of Labour and tell them you support paid sick days for all Ontario workers.
Tweet the Premier and Ministers:
I support paid sick days for all Ontario workers! @Kathleen_Wynne @DrEricHoskins @MPPKevinFlynn #15andfairness #onpoli
If you work in health, sign the statement. Help us reach 1,000 signatures by the end of November!
Your support today will make a huge difference! As the Ministry of Labour reviews employment laws for the first time in decades, we have an unprecedented opportunity to win paid sick days for all Ontario workers.
