Last Wednesday, Bill 148 passed its third and final reading and will now be the law in Ontario thanks to the efforts of trade unionists, community leaders and social activists across Ontario. We are especially proud of the Toronto Public Library workers who worked tirelessly to advocate for the progressive proposals in Bill 148. A living wage, better parental leave, sick days, and protection for workers and their families who suffer domestic violence will help ensure a better life for working people. A special shoutout to the awesome #librarywarriors Brandon, Emma, Gobi, Louisa, Alice and Austin for their work on this!
The Toronto Public Library Workers #StandWithFaculty. Ontario college faculty, counsellors and librarians have been on strike since October 16 against an unfair employer who has consistently exploited its workforce, and in doing so, has compromised the education of thousands of college students. Precarious work hurts everyone - and will do so for generations to come.
The Toronto Public Library Workers were there to work on ways to improve the lives of Torontonians.
Sign a postcard for Mayor JohnTory and make sure to attend the Toronto budget launch at City Hall on November 30 at 9:30 am in the Council Chambers.
Congratulations to the Sea of Solidarity Labour Team who climbed the CN Tower to raise money for the United Way #Up4Community this morning.
Library Warriors in bright blue t-shirts did the climb in awesome time - thank you to all those who supported this wonderful team.
Happy Halloween from the TPL Library Workers Union. Be safe, have fun, and watch out for the real-life precarity monster.
Also: take a moment to send a letter of support for striking OPSEU College Faculty who are fighting precarious work imposed by an unfair employer.
The Toronto Public Library Workers celebrated Ontario Public Library Week at the Scarborough Civic Center Library - TPL's 100th branch. We had postcards, buttons, eyeglass cleaners, and mini-colouring books designed by Daniel Rotsztain, Toronto artist and urban geographer depicting Toronto's Carnegie libraries.
