On June 1, 2017, Bill 148, Fair Workplaces, Better Jobs Act, was introduced at Queen’s Park. It’s a once in a generation opportunity to make progress for workers.

✔ Give all workers 3 paid weeks of vacation after 5 years with
the same employer

✔ Mandate equal pay for equal work between full-time and
part-time workers

✔ Provide all workers a minimum of 10 personal emergency
leave days, 2 of which must be paid

✔ Up to 15 weeks of unpaid leave if the employee or a child of
the employee experiences domestic or sexual violence or the
threat of domestic or sexual violence

Let’s send a message to your MPP to support Bill 148.
