In Toronto, workers will take their demands to the government with a rally at Queen’s Park at 2 p.m. to advocate for a $20 minimum wage, decent work, affordable housing, paid sick days, well-funded public services, livable income support for all, climate justice, status for all, and an end to racism and oppression.
The Toronto event will bring together workers from different sectors, from healthcare to education to transit.
“May Day is an important opportunity to reflect on the vital role that Ontario workers play in building our communities and province,” said President Wayne Hanley. “The struggles that workers and their families face are immense and will take unity, courage and active participation to create positive change. This May Day, think about what action you can take to help build a better Ontario for all.”
