Pay Equity Symposium
Time’s Up on Wage Discrimination: Close the Pay Gap and End Gender Wage Theft!
When: Tuesday, February 13, 2018 9:00 am to 4:30 pm
Where: USW Hall, 25 Cecil Street, Toronto
We have long fought for establishing legislative measures to ensure economic justice. The Ontario Pay Equity Act was a key victory in both acknowledging the under-funding of women’s work and in bringing in measures to ensure a process by which to achieve pay equity.
The gender pay gap is gender wage theft! Time’s up on wage discrimination!
The OFL and the Ontario Equal Pay Coalition will hold a special one-day symposium on Tuesday, February 13, 2018. The session with be delivered by the Equal Pay Coalition’s co-chairs Jan Borowy and Fay Faraday.
This strategy symposium launches the 2018 campaign to close the gender pay gap. Equal Pay Day is coming in April. The gathering on February 13 is a timely and unique opportunity to take stock of the state of pay equity in our workplaces and create new strategies for our workplace and for mobilization in an election year.
The February 13 symposium has three objectives:
- to provide a brief technical overview of the pay equity issues your members face;
- to identify the demands for Equal Pay Day/Provincial election; and
- to mobilize for Equal Pay Day.
