Premier's Statement on Labour Day

Office of the Premier

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne released the following statement today:

"Labour Day is an opportunity to celebrate the talented and hard-working people of Ontario, who have made this province one of the best places in the world to live, work and raise a family.

It is also a chance to recognize the enormous contributions that organized labour has made to our province through its unflagging efforts to improve working conditions. This has led to dramatic advances in workers' rights that have benefitted all employees, including retirement pensions, paid vacations, parental and family medical leave, minimum wage rates, and workplace health and safety protection.

I look forward to continuing to work with our labour and business partners to ensure that every workplace in our province is safe, fair and respectful -- and to strengthen Ontario's advantage in creating, attracting and keeping good jobs.

Enjoy this well-deserved holiday."
