Government of Ontario

Repeal Bill 124 Now!


WHEREAS Bill 124 has frozen the wages of frontline workers, including health care workers; and, WHEREAS skyrocketing inflation means the one per cent wage gap, 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 health care workers, 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 workersright to free and fair collective bargaining;
  • Safeguard our public services by giving workers the respect they deserve.
