Government of Ontario

Bill 124

Repeal Bill 124 Now!

To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:

WHEREAS Bill 124 has frozen the wages of frontline workers, including education and health care workers; and

WHEREAS skyrocketing inflation means the one per cent wage cap, instituted by Bill 124, is essentially a wage cut; and

WHEREAS Bill 124 disproportionately impacts women workers, including racialized women who are the lowest paid and most precariously employed; and

WHEREAS the pandemic has taken an enormous toll on the health of public sector workers, including education workers, leading to increased experiences of depression, anxiety, and stress; and

WHEREAS workers deserve more than just slogans from the Ford government that was re-elected after repeating the misleading slogan of “working for workers”; therefore

WE THE UNDERSIGNED petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to:

  • Immediately repeal Bill 124, and ensure decent working conditions for public sector workers
  • Restore public sector workers’ right to free and fair collective bargaining
  • Safeguard our public services by giving workers the respect they deserve
