The Income Security Advocacy Centre (ISAC) is working with Migrants Workers Alliance for Change (MWAC) to ensure that new employment laws are put in place to address barriers to workplace safety and fairness. You can get involved by visiting your Member of Provincial Parliament. Here is how.
Migrants Workers Alliance for Change (MWAC) is organizing Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP) visits for constituency week Nov 4th– 10th 2016.
There is an opportunity right now to push the Ontario governments to make meaningful changes that are needed to ensure justice and dignity for migrant workers.
The Changing Workplace Review is making recommendations to ensure that laws about employment and unionization meet the needs of all workers, especially those in the most precarious jobs. We need to make sure that the laws that are introduced address the particular barriers to workplace safety and fairness faced by migrant workers, including regulating recruiters and ending the exclusions from minimum work standards and collective bargaining.
Our ask of you:
