The OFL has a policy of non-violence, supporting peaceful protest in support of workers’ rights and fair treatment in the workplace. All actions are listed on the OFL website and publicized widely on social media. Non-violent civil disobedience is a cornerstone of democracy and a powerful force for change in society.
“I want to be clear, the Ontario Federation of Labour (OFL) does not support or condone violence against persons or property in any form,” said Ontario Federation of Labour President Chris Buckley.
While we understand that the government’s decision to repeal workers’ rights and protections is deeply troubling and a great concern to the people of Ontario, we encourage all workers to join with the OFL and its community partners in peacefully demanding better working conditions and higher wages for all workers in this province, whether they are unionized or not.
