Support worker input on the future of work
Ford’s Conservative government has struck a committee on the “future of work” without any representation from workers themselves. Instead, the Ontario Workforce Recovery Advisory Committee is primarily made up of employers while it leaves out representation from labour.
The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the struggles that workers face including a lack of access to paid sick days and proper PPE, and inadequate wages. Now, as Ontario looks towards recovery, workers’ voices must be included.
The best way to ensure a better future for workers is to ensure they have a seat at the table.
