Know Your New Rights!

Workers won significant changes to the Labour Relations Act and the Employment Standards Act. We must now make sure workers know their rights under the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act.

What is happening?

The labour movement is working to ensure that workers know their new rights. Read the booklet on what we’ve won and what workers are still fighting for.

How can you help?

Sign up to receive updates from the OFL about campaigns and actions. Talk to your friends, family, and colleagues about the rights we’ve won and what we’re still working for. Follow @OFLabour on twitter to stay up to date on the campaign. Download a booklet on changes to the Employment Standards Act and the Labour Relations Act called Know Your New Rights!

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.

How can you help?

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.
