On Wednesday, November 30 2016 , all apprentices and certified trades professionals in Ontario gathered together at Queen’s Park to rally against the Wynne Liberal government’s fast tracking of dangerous legislation hidden in a budget bill – Bill 70.
The proposed amendments in Schedule 17 will allow unskilled workers to do the work of compulsory trades. They will not be required to have a Certificate of Qualification – something we’ve worked hard to obtain. We won’t stand by and let the government help their corporate friends use cheaper unskilled labour at our expense. Contact your union or employer for more details.
