Repeal Bill 124, premier!

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.

Join us! Call on the premier to immediately repeal Bill 124.

Throughout the past 22 months of this pandemic, health-care workers across Ontario – especially nurses – have selflessly cared for citizens of Ontario while confronting fears for their own health and safety and that of their loved ones. 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. The growing prevalence of hiring and retention bonuses is a band-aid solution, causing instability in the workforce and disrupting continuity of patient care.

Public officials have uttered words of appreciation. We are “heroes” we are told. But meaningful and tangible signs of appreciation have been sparse. So, join us! Call on the premier to immediately repeal Bill 124.
