TORONTO, Sept. 23, 2023 /CNW/ - We're in a cost-of-living crisis and 30,000 Ontario Public Service (OPS) workers haven't had a real raise in nearly 10 years. The Ford government is determined to gut Ontario's public services ? creating a massive shortage that has caused a crisis in the public services all Ontarians depend on.
On Saturday, September 23, the OPS Unified Bargaining Team is heading back to the table to fight for a real wage increase that reflects the skyrocketing cost-of-living and catches up after years of stagnate wages. But at the last meeting, the Ford government didn't even bring a deal to the table. Their blatant disrespect for workers can only be reconciled with wage increases.
OPS Unified members will rally outside the wage re-opener talks as a show of support for their demands and to send a clear message to the Ford government: fair wages now!
WHAT: Ontario Public Service workers' rally for fair wages now ? Speakers include OPSEU/SEFPO President JP Hornick
WHERE: Sheraton Centre Hotel at 123 Queen St W. (across from Nathan Phillips Square)
WHEN: Saturday, September 23, 12 ? 1 p.m.
