InJured Workers Day – Saturday June 1, 2019

On June 1st every year, injured workers and labour activists gather outside the Legislative Assembly at Queen’s Park in Toronto and in cities across the province to mark Injured Workers’ Day. We rally on this day to celebrate the gains made through united action, raise current concerns – and remind governments we cannot be ignored.

This year join us at Queens Park from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm to hear speakers and become involved in the Injured Workers networks across the province.
