- Do you support changing the Canadian Labour code to enact a federal minimum wage of at least $20 per hour with no exemptions?
- Do you support changing the Canadian Labour Code to enact at least 10 permanent, employer-paid sick days each year?
- Do you support reversing the recent cut to Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB) to make workers receive a minimum of $500 weekly and as well as the CRB until the pandemic is over?
- Do you support improving the EI system to eliminate unfair rules, reduce the hours required for all workers and extend EI benefits for 52 weeks?
- Do you back big businesses? Do you support full protections for gig workers and ending the practice of misclassifying workers as, “self-employed” or “independent contractors”, while also saying NO to big business?
- Do you support indigenous justice by implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People, ending federal court oppositions to settling land claims, and respecting all treaties?
- Will you ensure the next government will provide full and permanent immigration status for all workers? Bring attention to the Temporary Foreign Work Program and make adjustments for migrant workers?
- Including protections for sick days and hazard pay, expansion of the OHSA to include agricultural-specific regulation, strengthen reprisal protections, legislate mandatory inquests upon worker deaths, provide decent and adequate housing to migrant farmworkers, and legislate migrant farmworkers’ right to organize.
- What have you committed to ending chronic homelessness and make significant housing changes?
With time of the essence, we gathered this from the Liberal and NDP Candidates!
- The Liberal government would legislate 10 paid sick days for federally regulated workers. And would immediately convene all provincial representatives to discuss legislating sick leave across Canada.
We currently have 3 under the COVID regulations! NDP is also in support of increasing the number of paid sick days.
- Liberals want to extend the Canada Recovery Hiring Program to March 31, 2022
- Continue to expand the Canada Workers Benefit to support 1 million additional Canadians in low wage jobs
- Tackle Canada’s labour shortage through increasing workers to immigrate to Canada, increasing labour participation with targeted incentives for low-income workers and seniors, and increasing supports for reskilling programs and for Canadians entering the trades
Something To note:
- NDP commits to reverse Trudeau’s health care cuts and give families in Sudbury more access to health care
- Wants to establish a national pharmacare program that would eliminate prescription drug fees for Canadians.
- The Liberals have also pledged a $500-million investment over four years to support Indigenous-governed and operated post-secondary institutions.
