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, Ontario Network of Injured Workers Groups (ONIWG) is holding a community forum at 10am 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.
On June 1st every year, injured workers, labour activists and their allies gather and pay respect to the hundreds of workers who have lost their lives or been seriously injured as a result of hazardous workplaces. Injured Workers’ Day is an opportunity to recognize the individuals who have suffered injuries and fatalities as a result of their workplace conditions, but it is also a time to rally and celebrate the gains made through united action, raise current concerns and remind governments workers rights cannot be ignored.
Workers’ Comp is a Right! Join us for a province-wide week of action from December 10th to the 14th, and take a stand for fairness for injured workers! In Toronto, we’re kicking the week off with a rally on Monday, December 10th at 11:30am outside the Ministry of Labour located at 400 University Avenue - view map for directions.
