OFL Says Bill 195 Must Not Go Forward

The Ontario Federation of Labour is cautioning against the Ontario Ford Conservative's proposed Bill 195 that would give themselves special powers and reduce public oversight of emergency orders. Accountability is key when it comes to extending emergency orders, Bill 195 will undermine democracy and workers’ rights.

There are already legislative processes for extending emergency orders as necessary to protect the health of Ontarians. This government has used emergency orders to undermine collective agreements instead of legislating decent work laws that would create permanent improvements in health and safety in the province. To protect Ontarians, extensions of emergency orders must be transparent, not masked by legislation.
