Wynnetario to reverse Tories Draconian Labour Laws

Amazing what can happen when you are last in polling........


Mandatory sick pay, shifting the threshold for overtime, boosting the minimum paid vacation, advance scheduling, and making it easier to join a union are all under consideration.

Premier Kathleen Wynne ordered the review of the province's labour and employment laws in 2015, with a focus on precarious employment and vulnerable workers.

Businesses have been buzzing about the potential reforms since the government's hand-picked special advisers released an interim report last summer, listing more than 200 proposals under consideration. Their final report is to be handed to Flynn in the coming days.

Some of the reforms being considered include banning replacement workers during strikes and lockouts, allowing domestic workers to join unions, and changing the rules about how unions are formed in certain industries that tend to be non-unionized.

"We're hopeful that the government takes serious measures to help all workers, whether they belong to a union or not," said Ontario Federation of Labour president Chris Buckley.

"There's such a host of issues that are wrong," Buckley said in an interview with CBC News. "You have workers sitting at home waiting for the phone to ring, they don't have their schedules in advance. You have workers who don't have paid sick days."

Ontario's Employment Standards Act currently does not require employers to give any paid sick days. The law requires a minimum of two weeks annual paid vacation, and the government's advisers are considering whether to recommend boosting that to three weeks.

The advisers are also considering whether to recommend a law that would force employers to give workers advance notice of their schedules.

Trumpites should get behind Wynne on this one. They like helping the workers, even if it means higher prices at the cash register.

MOGA has a nice ring to it.

If Wynne can just give a few million to some struggling manufacturer, Loc will probably campaign for her next election

If it's Wynne, a few billion wouldn't cut it for the conbots.

Patrick Brown just needs to promise dozens of jobs and he'll have their vote.

That's what he claims here in the forum but really, he supports Wynne's economic ideas when Trump speaks them so he's probably a closet Wynne supporter.

Yes, Wynne's socialist economic policies are as popular as Trump's will be.

Yeah, and? What's your point? I mean aside from the one one the top of your head.

Actually for the first time in my entire life, I might actually vote PC but I have feeling Mr. Brown is just pretending to be a reasonable person.

I don't believe you would vote against your pay masters .

One reason I had to work from home at one point around ten years ago was that the local office was trying to to form a closed-shop union. I didn't mind that they unionize if that's what they wanted to do, but I personally wanted no part of it. Since it was to be a closed-shop (and so would require me to join), I asked my interviewer if I could work from home remotely and be associated to a different non-unionized office. Done.

At that time, I would have preferred to work at the office initially as I learned the ropes. Jumping into a new company working from home was tough.

You and Flossy aren't as different as you pretend to be.

You both love politicians that want to protect workers from the unscrupulous corporations that are only interested in profits and not people. They give themselves different labels and you lap it up.

Oh please dude. The Libtards have had 14 goddam years to correct this and the only reason it's coming up NOW is because the Wynned sock is sitting at an 11% approval rating. I guess it's time for her to pretend she cares again with an election looming.
And ultimately, most of these policy ideas are designed to increase the amount of cash filling the tax coffers. Big shocker there.

In some areas, it's quite possible that Flossie and I could hold similar views, just as you and I potentially could. But that's because I'm not some partisan jackwit. A good idea is a good idea no matter what side comes up with it. And a bad idea is a bad idea no matter what side comes up with it.
This is a good idea (for the most part) but the timing of it is very suspect. Is it really a genuine concern for the average working person in Ontario or just another transparent ploy in an attempt to pump up the Wynned sock's horrid approval rating?

I don't really care why Wynne and Trump have the same economic ideas. The fact is, they do.

The Liberals pander to the high end and the low end. The Teachers and those on the dole will give Wynne another victory. The middle class will continue to get screwed and Ontario will remain a have-not province.

The Great Swami has spoken!!
