Join a summer organizing meeting near you!

July is off to such a fantastic start for the Fight for $15 & Fairness! Last week Alberta government announced they would increase the minimum wage to $15 by 2018. Here in Ontario, we too have come a long way in putting decent work on the government’s agenda –  see it for yourself in this storify. With your support and by continuing to organize in our communities, we know that we will make $15 & Fairness a reality!

Just in the span of the past few days: we have marched at Toronto’s Pride Parade with CUPE Ontario, celebrated Eid with a community outreach event, did a leaflet blitz about Scarborough-Rouge River by-election and picketed in solidarity with striking library workers. There is much more happening in the coming days, find out details and join an upcoming organizing meeting near you. Please scroll down for further information:
