Met with Julie Dabrusin, Liberal MP from Toronto-Danforth and Lindsay Mathyssen from London-Fanshawe, with teams of activists from various unions

Almost 400 union activists came to Ottawa to lobby MP’S and Senators for:

A single payer, universal pharmacare program for all, better protection for workers’ pensions (particularly in cases where their employer files for bankruptcy), the reintroduction of a federal minimum wage at $15 to lead the way for provinces to follow suit and encouraging our government to be one of the first to sign on to ILO Convention 190 which works towards setting a global standard for the elimination of harassment and violence in the world of work on an international level.
