Together, we made significant strides to raise the standard of work across the province. After 20 years of woefully outdated labour and employment laws, the Government of Ontario introduced the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act in 2017. This was a result of many hard-fought struggles and the collective voice of millions demanding immediate action to modernize the Employment Standards Act and the Labour Relations Act. This document provides a summary of the recent changes introduced through the Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act and our demands going forward.
