Boards of Education: Bill 115

Bill 115 Puts Everyone’s Rights at Risk. Sign the Petition today!

October 29 2012

This legislation, although called the Putting Students First Act, 2012, sets a dangerous precedent for all Ontarians.  It is an unprecedented attack on free collective bargaining rights and violates the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. On October 11, Ontario’s education unions launched court challenges against the Ontario government citing Bill 115 as unconstitutional.

On October 16, Dalton McGuinty ducked his responsibilities by resigning as Premier and even more angering, he prorogued parliament.  Despite this, we will continue to fight against this legislation and any future legislation which interferes with collective bargaining rights protected under the Charter.  “The Ontario Liberals cannot be allowed to get away with this flagrant disregard for democracy. We are taking a stand for all education workers, for all working people in this province, for our students, and all those who depend on public services,” said Smokey Thomas on the day of the court challenges.
