Guild calls for changes to Ontario labour law
Factual TV worker Buffy Childerhose and CMG president Carmel Smyth gave a presentation on September 18 to the panel reviewing Ontario labour law. Much of the Guild recommendations come from experiences of people working in factual TV and are aimed at closing loopholes in employment standards. You can find out more and read the brief here.
If you have any questions about anything that’s going on with you at work, don’t hesitate to get in touch. All information is kept confidential.
