Join a Tim Hortons action near you, Wednesday, January 10. Read below for more details!

That same year RBI CEO Daniel Schwartz pocketed $6,173,993 in wages, stock options and other perks. An additional US$350 million in profits were given out to shareholders. TELL TIM HORTONS: Hands off workers’ wages & benefits! The Tim Hortons corporation dictates virtu...

Add your voice for fairness- Personal emergency leave for auto workers

For the first time in Ontario’s history, everyone will have the right to 10 days of emergency leave — except auto workers.

Instead of 10 days, auto workers will get seven days a year and three days for bereavement, none paid for. All workers, including auto workers, in Ontario should be included in all changes to the Employment Standards Act ther...
