Workers Have a Right to
Safe and Healthy Workplaces!
Workers’ Comp Is a Right!
Monday, December 9 –- 11:00 am
Ontario Ministry of Labour, 400 University Ave
Organized by Ontario Network of Injured Workers’ Groups
and $15 and Fairness
Injured workers and fellow workers’ rights advocates are rallying at the Ministry of Labour to tell the Ford government to fix occupational health and safety, and workers’ compensation NOW by:
– enacting s. 83(4) of the current Workplace Safety and Insurance Act that would hold employers responsible when temp agency workers are injured or killed at their places of work
– passing private members’ Bill 119 to end the practice of “deeming” (also called phantom jobs) that is impoverishing injured workers by cutting their benefits
