To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:
WHEREAS Bill 124 removes the right of public employees to negotiate fair contracts;
WHEREAS Bill 124 limits the wage increase in the broader public sector to a maximum of 1% per year at a time of unprecedented inflation;
WHEREAS those affected by Bill 124 are the people who teach us, care for us, make our hospitals and health care system work and protect the most vulnerable among us;
WHEREAS the current provincial government is showing disrespect to public servants to keep taxes low for some of our county’s most profitable corporations;
WE, the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to immediately repeal Bill 124 and show respect for public sector workers.
