Socialist Action Rallies with Thousands at Queen’s Park in Solidarity Support of CUPE Ontario

Opposition to the bully tactics of the Ontario Conservative government is growing.  Premier Ford's Bill 28, which not only bans a strike by 55,000 school support worker but imposes a wage settlement without arbitration or any further negotiation, is an outrage to millions, including most of the labour movement inside and outside Ontario.  On November 4, well over 10,000 people rallied at Queen's Park, and marched repeatedly around the provincial legislature in defiance of the Draconian law.  A wide range of unions and other working class organizations came to the defense of CUPE-Ontario and the right to strike.  This included LiUNA, which had endorsed Ford and the Tories in the June 2, 2022 provincial election, UNIFOR, the largest private sector union which is outside the CLC, and a host of other labour bodies.

Socialist Action Calls For an Ontario General Strike to Dump Thug Ford 

The democratic right to strike is at stake as confrontation escalates between 55,000 Ontario school support workers and the Conservative government of Doug Ford.  Rallies, protests, and walk-outs are the order of the day as provincial Tories use bully tactics to perpetuate poverty wages.  Socialist Action Canada and the Workers’ Action Movement urge everyone to gather at Queen’s Park in front of the Ontario Legislature on Friday, November 4, at 11 a.m. to defend the right to strike.
