The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Ontario represents 280,000 public sector workers. President Fred Hahn says it is time to listen to experts and legislate.
“We have been crystal clear from the first day of this crisis,” said Hahn.
“Ontarians need this government to legislate universal employer-provided and permanent paid sick days that is easy to access. Doubling payments, while helpful for those can access the federal benefit, is just doubling down on a flawed program.”
