LCBO workers highlight Equal Pay for Equal Work on Human Rights Day


December 11, 2012. 

Across Ontario LBED members commemorated the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on December 10. Their focus was Article 23.2 “Everyone, without discrimination, has the right to equal pay for equal work.” Members wore their buttons, filled in surveys and took their message to the streets outside  18 LCBO stores.  Spirits were high and the public was very engaged and supportive.  LBED local presidents, mobilizers and member volunteers offered free coffee and asked customers to fill in postcards supporting legislation which would require employers to pay temporary, casuals and part-time workers the same wage as full time workers.  Public support seemed even more positive after Tim Hudak’s tirade on privatization last week.
