Let's do better for Ontario – Election 2022

A woman with straight, light-coloured hair, speaks from behind a podium with her name on it: HorwathIt’s time we did better in Ontario. Voting for better means voting for the Ontario NDP in the June 2022 election. It means voting out the failed government of Doug Ford and the Ontario Progressive Conservatives (PCs).

Steelworkers are involved in politics because laws and policies have a big impact on our workplaces and our communities.

“We need to bring workers’ issues to the forefront. Let’s see some USW boots on the ground for the Ontario NDP,” said Myles Sullivan, USW District 6 Director.

Ford’s PCs: Too little, too late, too often

Ford’s PC government has attacked workers, collective bargaining, health and safety on the job, education, health care and seniors. Ford’s bad decisions bungled Ontario’s pandemic response.

Liberals not the answer

After 15 years of pro-corporate government, the Liberals waited until the end of their term to propose changes workers needed. It was easy for Doug Ford and his PC government to roll back labour reforms when they formed government in 2018.

USW priorities for the Ontario 2022 election

We need to bring back good manufacturing jobs in Ontario. We need to develop our natural resources at home from start to finish. We need a partner in government that we can trust. That’s Andrea Horwath and the Ontario NDP.

Andrea and the NDP have an infrastructure program that will create good-paying unionized jobs while adding to our long-term care capacity and repairing schools.

Our union is proud to have five Steelworkers seeking re-election to Queen’s Park. They run for the NDP because it’s the only party that truly shares our working-class values: Gilles Bisson (Timmins); Guy Bourgouin (Mushkegowuk–James Bay); Jeff Burch (Niagara Centre); Michael Mantha (Algoma–Manitoulin); and Jamie West (Sudbury).
