Fair wages now!
In a cost-of-living crisis a 1% wage increase is an insult. Ontario Public Service (OPS) Unified members are ready to fight for what they deserve!
Bill 124 – Ford’s wage-suppressing bill – was deemed unconstitutional and struck down, making it “void and of no effect”. This triggered the wage reopener clause in the OPS Unified Collective Agreement, allowing us to renegotiate wage increases and benefits.
The OPS Unified Bargaining Team is heading back to the table on September 23 and they’re fighting for a REAL wage increase that reflects the skyrocketing cost-of-living and the wages that were lost during the Bill 124 era. But at the last meeting, the Ford government didn’t even bring a deal to the table. It’s a slap in the face.
Their blatant disrespect for workers can only be reconciled with wage increases.
Help us show our strength at a rally outside the Sheraton Centre Hotel!
When: September 23rd at 12pm
Where: Sheraton Centre Hotel at 123 Queen St W. (across from Nathan Phillips Square)
30,000 OPSEU/SEFPO members working in the Ontario Public Service (OPS) haven’t had a real raise in nearly 10 years. Severe short staffing is rampant, and this means out of control wildfires and smoke-filled air, unsafe workplaces and cuts across the public sector that affect everyone.
Ford thinks he can get away with intimidating us and legislating away our right to organize and bargain. A massive show of support for our demands will send a clear message to the Ford government: enough is enough!
