Toronto, Jan. 19, 2018 - Friday, January 19, 2018 is the National Day of Action
in Support of Tim Hortons Workers.
Following widespread revelations that Tim Hortons workers were losing paid breaks
and benefits in response to Ontario’s increase to the minimum wage, the labour movement,
community organizations, and the broader public mobilized to protest the rollbacks.
Rallies are being held at more than 40 Tim Hortons locations from Nova Scotia to
Vancouver to tell RBI Inc., the parent company of Tim Hortons, that it must take
action to guarantee fair work to its employees.
The National Day of Action in support of Tim Hortons workers is organized by the
Ontario Federation of Labour, which represents 54 unions across Ontario, the Canadian
Labour Congress representing unions across Canada, and the Fight for $15 and Fairness,
a community, faith, student, and labour-based network that launched the fight for
a $15 minimum wage and other improvements in employment law.
