West: Doug Ford should get out of the way of workers’ protected rights

QUEEN’S PARK - Following Doug Ford’s wage-capping Bill 124 being struck down by the Ontario courts, Ontario NDP Labour critic MPP Jamie West (Sudbury) spoke during Question Period, asking Doug Ford to respect Justice Koehnen’s decision declaring Bill 124 unconstitutional.

“The Ontario Superior Court Justice threw out Bill 124 in its entirety, ruling it null and void,” said West. “Bill 124 has been bad for workers in Ontario and it should never have seen the light of day in the first place.”

West called on Doug Ford to start showing workers the respect they deserved, “get out of the way of workers’ protected right to freely bargain a fair wage and respect this decision."
