On August 5, President Kelly Johnson wrote a letter to Prime Minister Trudeau regarding the poor standard for paid sick leave in Canada and the need to extend paid sick leave for all workers. As Johnson stated, the promise to urge provinces to enact legislation providing 10 paid sick days each year for all employees is a good start, but far more needs to be done to fight COVID-19 and protect workers. Check out the letter online by following the link above. We encourage you to send the same or a similar letter to your premier from your local.
