Bill 124 struck down, UWOFA urges Ford government not to appeal

November 30th, 2022


UWOFA applauds the Ontario Court decision to strike down Bill 124, a law that limited wage increases for public sector employees.

As a party involved in the Charter challenge, we call on the Ford government to do the right thing and let the ruling stand. An appeal will only serve to add more uncertainty to the lives of working people, while also costing money that could be better spent reinvesting in the public sectors that desperately need it. This attack on workers must stop and free collective bargaining must be allowed to resume.

Members should contact the Ontario government directly with their concerns:

UWOFA will be releasing a full statement on Friday clarifying the potential impact of this court decision for each of our bargaining units.
