The Holidays are around the corner and the provincial government has a gift: money back into employers’ pockets, shame. It’s no secret that the so-called WSIB surplus came from decades of cuts to injured workers’ benefits – so why are injured workers treated unfairly by the same system that was built to protect them? We call on you to show up for injured workers.
On December 14th at 10am, join injured workers for the 30th anniversary of the Christmas Demonstration. The theme this year: Fighting back against more gifts to employers – nothing for injured and ill workers.
This year, ONIWG is holding a community forum (10am to 11am) in partnership with the Thunder Bay & District Injured Workers Support Group to hear from injured workers. It’s time for the provincial government to listen to injured workers. At 11am, we will hear from allies fighting for injured workers in the Labour movement, and those battling for migrant workers’ rights, occupational disease coverage, and more. We will also have some festive performances from injured workers themselves.
More details on the forum, the speakers, and the performances will be available soon on our facebook event. Please join the event and invite your friends, and share our flyer on your social media.
