  • Repeal Bill 124 to help shore up Ontario healthcare

QUEEN’S PARK– Mike Schreiner made the following statement in response to the government’s announcement this morning, including that pandemic pay will be made permanent for PSWs:

“The Premier needs to immediately repeal Bill 124 so health-care workers can bargain for a fair wage and important benefits like mental health supports.

That’s the best way to shore up the gaping holes in Ontario’s health system and address the staffing crisis.

Health-care workers across the province are leaving in droves, burnt out and exhausted from poor working conditions. They deserve better.

Repealing Bill 124 is a key step that will help address the current health crisis, prepare us for future public health emergencies, and build a more resilient, caring and healthy Ontario.”
