ACTION REQUEST: March 12 Day of Actions for LCBO workers, AGO rally on March 13

Thousands of LCBO workers across Ontario, members of OPSEU/SEFPO, are getting organized to defend their jobs, win better wages, and stop Ford’s privatization plans.

They have already collected the signatures of over 70 per cent of their members in support of these demands.

On Tuesday, March 12 from 10 AM to 11 AM in a series of coordinated actions across multiple locations, these workers and their supporters will be delivering their petitions to MPPs’ offices.

We encourage affiliates to join or support these actions. Here’s how you can help:

  • Where possible, join an action near you. Actions will take place in Brockville, Hamilton, London, Mississauga, North Bay, Ottawa, Pickering, Port Hope, Thunder Bay, Toronto (at Doug Ford’s constituency office), and Windsor.
  • Like and share these social media posts about the day of action: FacebookInstagramTwitter.
  • Promote the action and this RSVP page among your members and allies.

Tuesday’s action is just the beginning of a long-term campaign to defend LCBO workers and to stop Ford’s plans to privatize the LCBO – which generates billions of dollars every year that go into our public services. We won’t let Ford hand it over to his billionaire buddies.

Stay tuned for more updates about this crucial campaign, including how you and your members can be part of the fight.

For affiliates based in Toronto, please also support this solidarity rally for Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) cultural workers, who may be on strike as early as March 25. The rally will take place on Wednesday, March 13 from 5 PM to 7 PM at the AGO, 317 Dundas Street West (map).

Thank you for your support.

In solidarity,
