Make It Fair: Amendments to Bill 148, Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act

The Ontario government is currently reviewing the province’s employment laws. “Make it Fair” is a campaign of the Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) to mobilize labour unions to fight for labour law reform, in solidarity with the Fight for $15 and Fairness campaign.

What is happening?

While we have won significant gains, amendments are still needed to ensure that Bill 148 ensures decent work for all Ontario Workers. Read about the needed amendments.

How can you help?

Sign up to receive updates from Make It Fair. Talk to your friends, family, and colleagues about the need for laws that create the conditions for decent work in Ontario. Follow Make It Fair on facebook, and follow @OFLabour on twitter to stay up to date on the campaign.

Domestic Violence Goes to Work Everyday: A Bargaining Guide

Workers who are dealing with domestic violence need support in the workplace in order to escape an abusive situation. This campaign aims to give labour organizations the tools they need to bargain to ensure supports for survivors.

What is happening?

The OFL has advocated for domestic violence leave to be included in employment laws through Bill 148. At the same time, it has developed a bargaining guide to support labour organizations as they work to guarantee this leave in collective agreements.

Kill a Worker, Go to Jail

Workplace deaths are too often the result of poor health and safety practices in the workplace. Employers who don’t provide proper safety standards to their workers should face criminal charges. All workers must have safe and healthy workplaces.

What is happening?

When a worker is killed, the OFL contacts police to remind them of their duty to conduct a criminal investigation through a C-45 lens.

How can you help?

When you see or hear of a workplace death, contact the Ontario Federation of Labour at info@ofl.ca, so that the OFL can follow up with police in the area.
