Precarious Employment: Exploring Strategies for Change

Sunday, April 23, 2017 • 27 Nisan 5777

7:00 PM - 9:00 PMSocial Hall

More than half of the workers in the GTA and Hamilton are in precarious employment: either in part-time, short-term, or temporary work, usually poorly paid without security, benefits or union protection.  This is the new workplace and the new work life reality.

Join our discussion of Precarious Employment and learn about strategies and proposals to shift in a more positive direction for workers.  With expected upcoming legislative changes to labour legislation in Ontario, this is a critical time to weigh in on this important subject which affects all of us, our children and the future.

Moderator: Elliot Siemiatycki – Policy Advisor on Workforce and Economic Development

Panelists:         

Deena Ladd – Workers Action Centre

Andrew Cash – Urban Workers Project

Rabbi Shalom Schachter – Interfaith Social Assistance Reform Coalition
