As the Ontario Legislature resumes, the Ontario Workforce Recovery Advisory Committee – a committee without any representation from workers – is preparing to release a report and recommendations on the future of work for gig workers. With the threat of carve-outs for app-based gig workers looming, we must come together to demand Full and Equal Rights for Gig Workers now.
On October 7, the World Day for Decent Work, app-based delivery workers are taking action to demand #MakeGigWorkDecentWork. Show your support by telling Minister Monte McNaughton not to carve out a separate employment status for gig workers. A worker is a worker.
This is an issue for all workers: If Ontario legislates lower employment standards for today’s gig workers, Ontario employers will soon try to gig-ify every job possible.
Take action to #MakeGigWorkDecentWork.
