In 2018, Doug Ford eliminated the requirement to provide paid sick days, leaving workers to choose between their health and putting food on the table. In 2020, during a global pandemic, he doubled-down on his anti-sick day policy.
A year into the pandemic, he promised the best paid sick day program in North America, only to provide 3 paid sick days that expire in September.
We’re calling for 10 paid sick days that are provincially funded and available until the pandemic is deemed over. Once the threat of the pandemic has subsided, we will continue to work for permanent paid sick days.
