Bill 59 Demonstration in Montreal

On April 28, join the Montreal Metropolitan Central Council of the CSN, the Union des Travailleuses et Travailleurs Accidentés ou Malades, and the Montreal Metropolitan Regional Council of the FTQ for a demonstration against the new Bill 59. April 28 is also the International Day of Remembrance for Workers Killed or Injured at Work. Bill 59, which aims to “modernize” the compensation framework for workers who are victims of work-related accidents or illnesses, as well as the occupational health and safety protection framework, is on the contrary a huge setback for workers. All the major trade union confederations are unanimously opposed to it, even after certain changes made by the government, following a first wave of protest when it was tabled at the end of 2020. A struggle that the working class cannot afford to lose. Meet on Wednesday April 28 at 3:30 p.m. in front of the CNESST offices at 1199 de Bleury.
