Janitors are Standing up for Good Jobs and Making Gains
As recently as 2007 hundreds of janitors in Toronto were trapped in elaborate subcontracting schemes that denied workers basic protections covered in the Employment Standards Act such as WSIB coverage, EI, vacation time, and CPP contributions. There were cases where workers were not even making minimum wage. Medical benefits was a dream for the vast majority.
Today, thanks to the Justice for Janitors campaign, hundreds workers and their families in Toronto are enjoying benefits, including dental coverage and thousands have won modest but important gains in pay and extra Holidays.
