MEDIA ADVISORY - Invitation: Solidarity breakfasts before Bill 148 hearings

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 10, 2017) - Ontario Federation of Labour and local labour councils are holding a series of solidarity breakfasts across Ontario to celebrate the province-wide effort to improve the lives of working people.

"I encourage everyone to attend these solidarity breakfasts. It is essential that workers make themselves heard at hearings on Bill 148, to ensure that it goes far enough in supporting decent work across this province," said OFL President Chris Buckley. "Ontario workers need laws that will raise the floor for all workers, and make it easier to join and keep a union."

After the solidarity breakfasts, workers will be supporting labour and community activists who will present to the Ontario Legislative Standing Committee on Finance and Economic Affairs on Bill 148, Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act.

This is an important opportunity to continue to build on the movement for decent work for all Ontarians.
