OFL Election Debrief
The fight for a workers-first agenda is far from over.
While the outcome of the Ontario Election is not what we fought for, we know that it is more important than ever to build a fighting labour movement.
Ford’s Conservatives received less than 18% support from the electorate. Ontarians remain angry at Ford’s agenda, but instead of choosing an alternative, many chose not to vote at all.
At the same time, we know that there’s clear public support for workers’ issues: a $20 minimum wage; 10 permanent paid sick days; well-funded public services; decent work; better access to a union; racial, climate, and disability justice; and more.
It is clear: we need to connect, engage, and organize everyone on the issues that matter most to us.
