#RepealBill124: Action Alert and upcoming rally on Nov. 14

RNAO continues to urge Premier Ford to immediately repeal Bill 124. 

Bill 124 caps compensation increases for a broad range of public sector workers, including nurses, at just one per cent. In real terms, that means nurses’ incomes are not keeping up with the cost of living. In fact, the real value of their take home pay/income is less. 

Nurses are exhausted. They are burnt out. They are leaving the profession. And, Bill 124 is in large part to blame. The departure of nurses from our profession will lead to even longer wait times for already backlogged procedures and surgeries, compromising people’s health and threatening the effective functioning of Ontario’s health system. 

Sign and share RNAO’s Action Alert to call on the premier to repeal Bill 124.

Save the date: On Sunday, Nov. 14 at 12 p.m. ET in Toronto’s Nathan Phillips Square, RNAO is joining the rally organized by @NurseWithSign to call on Premier Ford to repeal Bill 124. RNAO’s CEO Dr. Doris Grinspun and President Morgan Hoffarth will be leading the RNAO contingent. 

RNAO encourages you alongside your colleagues, family and friends to participate in the rally to support the demand to end wage suppression.

If you’re planning to attend, please wear your mask, maintain physical distancing and abide by all public health measures. Also, be sure to tag @RNAO and use #RepealBill124 in your tweets.
