Doug Ford’s Conservative Government refused to pass Bill 239, Peggy Sattler’s Stay Home If You Are Sick Act, which would have provided 7 permanent paid sick days, plus 14 additional days during a pandemic like the COVID-19 crisis. will continue to call on the Ontario legislature to pass this critical measure to keep Ontarians healthy and safe. We continue to call on the provincial government to pass legislation and initiate other key initiatives to address the pandemic. We will continue to support the paid sick leave campaigns of $15 and Fairness, Decent Work and Health Network, and the Ontario Federation of Labour.
