We stood up for Ontario's pay equity legislation

The Ontario Conservative government under Mike Harris attempts to eliminate the proxy equity comparison method and cap payouts owed to women. The SEIU joins other unions and goes to court to fight the legislation. The case is finally settled in 2003, providing up to $414 million in pay equity funding to 100,000 women.

In response to government cutbacks and anti-union legislation, SEIU Canada joins the Days of Action, a provincial-wide labour campaign that includes one-day general strikes and rallies in eleven cities throughout Ontario.
