Workers’ Comp is a Right! Injured Workers Rally & March

 

Friday June 1st, 11:00am

Queen’s Park

Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/180833029238226/

 

Injured workers are rising up. Refusing to be held down by the cutting edge of austerity, the injured worker movement is building power, gaining momentum, and demanding transformative change. We are taking back our compensation system.

 

Between the province-wide Workers’ Comp is a Right campaign and the Real Healthcare campaign, we have organized across Ontario to force the Liberal government to respond to our demands. With Injured Workers Day coming just a few days before the provincial election, we have one more opportunity to show our collective strength and put all the Parties on notice.

 

No matter who is elected on June 7th, injured workers will be there, standing up for our rights, and calling for dignity and respect.

 

So join us on June 1st, as we take to the streets and say:

 

Workers’ comp is a right!

We will not give up the fight!

 

Organized by the Ontario Network of Injured Workers’ Groups (ONIWG) injuredworkersonline.org
