UWOFA calls on the Ontario government to halt the appeals process on ruling which struck down Bill 124
March 10, 2023
UWOFA stands with education workers in Ontario, represented by CUPE-OSBCU (Ontario School Board Council of Unions). We condemn the Ontario government’s proposed back-to-work legislation which seeks to interfere with free and democratic collective bargaining. We are further appalled by the threat being made to invoke the notwithstanding clause to protect this despicable legislation from constitutional and legal challenges.
We call on members to take part in a coordinated solidarity action on Friday, November 4th (stand by for a follow-up message regarding how/where in London, ON) to support our fellow workers in the education sector.
You can also take action right now: Tell Doug Ford: Hands off workers’ rights! Stop the attack on education workers!
An attack on collective bargaining and the legally protected right to strike is a threat to labour laws, charter-protected rights, and fair working conditions everywhere.
