Estina Sebastien-Geetan, a leader at the Workers’ Action Centre, gave an inspiring speech to over 1,000 delegates at the Ontario Federation of Labour Convention! Estina urged the labour movement to join our Stop Wage Theft campaign and to build solidarity across our struggles for fairness at work. Here is some of Estina’s speech:
“We need your support. We need you to help us in this fight. We want your local, your union to pledge your solidarity with us.
That you will stand arm in arm with us to push this government to make wage theft a top priority and do what’s right. That you will stand firm with us to push these employers who think they can treat us like garbage.
My friend, to be a victim of wage theft, is to have your bread and butter taken away from you.”
