Have Your Say on Bill 148

Bill 148 – Changes to Ontario’s Employment and Labour Laws

On June 1, the Ontario government introduced Bill 148: Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act 2017.

These changes are the culmination of years of mobilizing and lobbying among union members, worker advocates, anti-poverty activists, faith leaders and many more.

But our work must continue. This is a once in a generation opportunity to achieve major labour law reform so we must continue fighting to get the changes that workers in this province deserve.

CUPE has created a fact sheet that provides overview of the changes we will be focusing our lobbying effort towards.

There are public hearings that are coming up in a number of communities across the province. The bill is expected to pass this Fall and as the process unfolds, CUPE will be providing further information.

Labour must have a strong voice and presence at these consultations. The committee will benefit from hearing how this legislation will impact working people across the province.

If you have not already done so, please register to make an oral presentation when this committee meets in your community, or in a community near you.

For the member of CUPE 932 who are interested in making an oral presentation, please contact any member of the Executive Committee.
