Hello, my name is __________ and I’m calling _______ because I believe all workers in the province of Ontario deserve paid sick days. 

We have seen that Black, Indigenous and racialized workers in Ontario are disproportionately affected by the lack of paid sick days. No worker should have to choose between keeping themselves and their community safe and putting food on the table. 

I am asking you to immediately listen to public health experts and legislate real paid sick days for all workers in Ontario.

Can I count on you to support Ontario workers?

Dear Premier Ford, Minister Elliott and Minister McNaughton, 

Ontarians need paid sick days and it is urgent now more than ever. Public health experts agree that paid sick days will be an essential tool to get the pandemic under control. 

65% of GTA workers are doing “essential” work, and an estimated 90% of low-wage workers do not have paid sick days. Work places are by far the largest contributor to the spread of COVID-19. People shouldn’t have to choose between going to work sick and risk infecting others or losing a day’s wages. 

We urge you to immediately act on the following demands:

  • Implement paid sick days for all workers
  • Provide paid time off to get a vaccine
  • Shut down all non-essential workplaces
  • Ensure vaccinations for all frontline workers

The government needs to provide real paid sick leave if they are truly committed to protecting the public. This is the fight to save Ontario. Paid sick days save lives.
