October 1st 2016
1:00 PM Queen's Park - Toronto
ECE contingent meeting at the corner of Queen's Park Crescent and University Ave
Join the AECEO at the Rally for Decent Work on October 1st! Together Early Childhood Educators can call for Professional Pay and Decent work for all. This is a great opportunity for the early childhood workforce to come out and meet with other ECEs, advocates and allies in the movement for Decent Work.
Bring your creative signs calling for professional pay and decent work for Ontario's early childhood sector!
The Ontario Federation of Labour has dozens of buses leaving from across Ontario to bring community members just like you to Queen’s Park. Reserve your free trip for this weekend!
The overarching goal of this campaign is to address the long-standing issue of low and inequitable compensation for early childhood educators (ECEs) in Ontario. We are calling on the government to fund professional pay for all ECEs in Ontario regardless of where they work. Professional pay should reflect ECEs’ specialized training, the value of their work and their participation in continuous professional learning.
No ECE should have to work for less than a professional wage and all ECEs should be recognized for their professional qualifications and practice.
