We are going to the Supreme Court!

Justicia for Migrant Workers & IAVGO off to the Supreme Court of Canada

The Industrial Accident Victims Group of Ontario (IAVGO) and Justice for Migrant Workers (J4MW) are excited to announce that we have been jointly awarded intervener status at the Supreme Court of Canada in Fraser v. Attorney General of Ontario .

This historic case challenges the exclusion of farmworkers, many of whom are racialized migrant workers, from joining unions and bargaining collectively. We believe that denying farmworkers the right to unionize and bargain collectively further entrenches the systemic wrongs that migrant workers/racialized farmworkers have historically and contemporarily experienced.
