JUSTICE FOR JANITORS
Support Impact Cleaning Workers
Rally during OFL convention
Thurs. November 26th, 8:30am
65 Queen St. W
(Southwest corner of Bay and Queen. – across from City Hall)

Cleaners across Toronto have been fighting for better conditions and wages in their industry. They work in an industry where employers routinely use subcontracting schemes to deny workers vacation pay, EI, CPP, WSIB coverage sometimes they receive less than minimum wage.
Workers at Impact Cleaning Services Ltd. face such an employer. Impact has been found guilty of not paying overtime and violating the City of Toronto’s fair wage policy. Workers have also gone to the Ministry of Labour in order get back pay and money for unpaid vacations and holidays.
In addition to their employers cleaners also have to fight some of the largest and wealthiest companies in Canada who own the buildings they clean.
Impact has several contracts with Redcliff Property Management including 65 Queen St W. Redcliff continues to let Impact clean its buildings, in essence rewarding them for treating workers this way. Redcliff is owned by billionaire David Thomson one of the wealthiest individuals in Canada.
There is no reason a wealthy company needs to cut corners by hiring companies like Impact. Redcliff has a responsibility to all the workers in their buildings.
Support Justice for Janitors, join us in the fight for better standards for cleaning workers in Toronto.
