Bill 115 attacks labour rights, democracy, and quality public education. Secondary school teachers and education workers want to reverse the effects of Bill 115, but our union's current strategy involves no real membership education, ongoing democratic input, or member and community mobilization. If you are an OSSTF member who wants our Provincial Executive to do a better job at fighting the consequences of Bill 115, please watch this video and sign the petition.
A new pamphlet by the Free and Accessible Transit Campaign of the GTWA:
Free and Accessible Transit Now:
Toward A Red-Green Vision for Toronto
Transit is a critical issue for people in Toronto, as in all major urban areas. More is at stake than reducing traffic congestion and gridlock. Transit and general mobility are intimately related to larger issues in capitalist society: how goods and services are produced and delivered; the location of and nature of jobs; where and how we live and travel; issues of class, inequality and oppression related to race, age, gender, and sexuality; climate justice; and the very shape and nature of our democratic institutions.
