Speaking out for decent work conditions and fair wages

CUSJ, represented by past-president Frances Deverell, along with current president Margaret Rao, has signed onto the Faith Leaders Statement calling for a number of improvements to the Ontario government’s Employment Standards Act and Labour Relations Act.  The statement is part of the Fight for $15 and Fairness movement calling for decent work and stronger laws to better protect workers in Ontario’s changing labour market. This statement coincides with the current governmental review of two critical laws that determine the well-being of workers: the Employment Standards Act and Labour Relations Act.

The Faith Leaders Statement is intended to show the Ontario government that diverse faith communities demand greater fairness for our province’s most marginalized workers, many of whom struggle to provide a livelihood for themselves and their families.
