Ontario's Union for fairness, equality and respect at work.

Join your union in celebrating all that workers have achieved together!

This September 4, Labour Day events will take place across Ontario to celebrate all that workers have achieved – and for good reason.

Unions have continually been at the forefront of pushing for a fairer and more progressive vision for workers and their families.

At the bargaining table, unions with the support of their members have raised the bar on employment standards and labour law.

The 8-hour work day, parental leave, and public pensions – are just a few examples of the labour movement’s past wins.

This Labour Day we’ll be celebrating the Ontario government’s annoucement to increase the minimum wage. We’ll also be recommiting ourselves to keep pushing for futher rights to improve the lives of Ontario’s workers. 

On September 4, I hope you take a moment to reflect on the value that we all bring to building a fairer Ontario.
