TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – May 29, 2017) – Today, labour leaders from across the province gathered to discuss next steps in advance of the government’s anticipated reaction to the Changing Workplaces Review, reaffirming their commitment to Ontario workers.
From rallying at Queen’s Park by the thousands to meeting with MPPs to talk about their needs in the workplace, Ontario’s workers have made their points of view clear to the government: outdated employment and labour laws need to be changed to reflect the needs of workers in today’s job market, and all workers need protections under the law.
Some OFL priorities are reflected in the Changing Workplaces Review final recommendations. However, the labour movement is calling for the government to do all it can to ensure that all workers are well protected by new employment and labour laws, and that the constitutional right to freedom of association is respected through legislation that protects workers’ Charter right to access meaningful collective bargaining through unionisation.
“Working people have told the government what they need to see from the Changing Workplaces Review,” said OFL President Chris Buckley. “This review can improve the lives of all the workers in this province whether they’re in a union or not. All the priorities listed by the labour movement must be implemented without delay.”
The OFL and its affiliates have been advocating for wide-ranging reforms to labour and employment law, as well as a $15 minimum wage.
“At the start of the Changing Workplaces Review process, the labour movement came to a consensus on changes that are essential for workers in this province,” said Buckley. “Changes haven’t been made yet and there is still time to create fair legislation. We are calling on the government to fully implement the priorities set out on behalf of Ontario workers by the labour movement. Half-measures will not solve the problems Ontario workers face in today’s labour market.”
To make it fair, the government can improve on the recommendations by:
Guaranteeing the Charter right of all Ontarians to bargain collectively with their employer by implementing card-based certification in every sector and for all workplaces to reduce barriers for employees who want to organize.
Providing automatic access to first-contract arbitration.
Prohibiting replacement workers to make sure the law does not undercut workers who are fighting for decent work.
Extending access to collective bargaining for all Ontario workers by introducing broad-based bargaining models beyond franchises to also include other sectors of the economy.
Extending and increasing access to just cause protection for all workers, unionized and non-unionized workers alike.
Providing seven paid sick days for all workers separate from Personal Emergency Leave.
Providing ten designated paid job-protected days for survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
Legislating three weeks paid vacation for all Ontario workers upon employment.
As well as moving forward with legislation on the issues identified in the changing workplaces review, the government must set a $15 minimum wage immediately across the province.

The OFL’s www.MakeItFair.ca campaign takes on issues of inequality in the workforce, and coincides with the province’s “Changing Workplaces Review.” The campaign gives voice to unions’ demands for across-the-board changes to the Employment Standards Act and the Labour Relations Act that would improve standards for every worker and make it easier for them to join a union.
The OFL represents 54 unions and one million workers in Ontario. For information, visit www.OFL.ca and follow @OFLabour on Facebook and Twitter.
The Fight for $15 & Fairness is a campaign supported by community, labour, student and faith groups across Ontario, calling for sweeping reform to employment and labour laws. Central in the campaign is the demand for a $15 minimum wage for all workers, regardless of age, student status, job or area of work.

HONG KONG, CHINA–(Marketwired – May 26, 2017) – According to an oral health survey conducted in 2011 by the Department of Health of HKSAR government, almost all of the adults surveyed (96.1%) have experienced tooth decay at some point. Tooth decay is a common affliction caused by improper oral healthcare especially after meals. During the upcoming Dragon Boat Festival, many would love to enjoy different kinds of rice dumplings, in particular, females with a sweet tooth might add cane sugar to enrich the flavors which might increase their risk of tooth decay. According to Professor Edward Chin-Man Lo, Chair Professor of Dental Public Health in Faculty of Dentistry at the University of Hong Kong, females should pay attention to their oral hygiene at different life stages, especially during pregnancy and being a mother at home. The impact of poor oral health on mothers and mothers-to-be can be more than just a simple case of tooth decay. Oral hygiene not only affects the women themselves, but also the health of their unborn babies, infants and children. It is recommended for mothers to follow the “four dental hacks to perfect clean teeth” to keep the dentist at bay for themselves as well as for their children.
Pregnant Women: Poor Oral Health Might Increase Risk in Preterm Birth and Underweight Infant
Women experience dramatic biological changes and changes in their daily routines during pregnancy, and these can increase the propensity for oral disease. Professor Lo explained, “Changes in female hormones during pregnancy can cause inflamed gums and this inflammation makes pregnant women more susceptible to the bacteria in plaque. This phenomenon is called ‘Pregnancy-Associated Gingivitis’. In addition to biological changes, pregnancy also changes a woman’s dietary habits. With increased frequency of food intake, the chances of tooth decay and other oral problems are also proportionately higher if proper oral healthcare after each meal is neglected.”
Poor oral health of pregnant women does not only affect the adult, but can also have an impact on the fetuses. Professor Lo added, “Studies have pointed out that periodontal disease in pregnant women can be a risky affair, which can increase the risk of preterm birth and underweight newborn.”
Newbie Mother: Living Habits can Directly Impact Oral Health of Infants
New mothers are another group that tend to overlook their own oral health. The pressure of being a new mother and the exhaustion from taking care of their infants can cause mothers to neglect their own oral health, resulting in tooth decay and periodontal disease. Given the intimate relationship between mothers and their babies, especially in the first three years, the mothers’ oral hygiene habits can have a direct impact on the health condition of their infants. Professor Lo said, “Very often, mothers share their food or feed their children after having chewed on the food. The bacteria for tooth decay can be passed to the kids through these actions. As a result, the oral health of the mothers can have an effect on the health of their children as well.”
Follow “The Ten-Minute Rule” by Chewing Sugar-Free Gums for Perfect Clean Teeth after Each Meal
Professor Lo reiterated that oral health is fundamental to the general health and wellbeing of a person. In particular, mothers should not only set a good example for their kids, but also check their oral conditions that might affect the oral health of kids. They should follow the “four dental hacks to perfect clean teeth”, including go for regular dental check-ups, use fluoride toothpaste for tooth brushing in the morning and before bedtime, use dental floss or mouthwash containing fluoride daily as well as chew sugar-free gum after eating or drinking.
Professor Lo also explained that saliva is a natural weapon to neutralize the acid in the mouth and chewing sugar-free gums will increase the secretion of saliva by 10 times (when comparing to resting state). There are three main benefits of increasing saliva secretion, including lower the acidity in the mouth, replenish the lost mineral ions on the tooth surfaces that are damaged by plaque acid and help to remove the residue sweet food on the teeth. To all mother and kids, chewing two pieces of sugar-free gums for five to ten minutes after each meal helps to stimulate the secretion of saliva and neutralize the acid in the mouth. By doing so, not only it helps curb the formation of plaque and other acidic substances, it can also clear the food residue in the gaps of the teeth and reduce stickiness on the tooth surfaces. To maximize the effectiveness, all of the mothers should stick with “The Ten-Minute Rule” by chewing sugar-free gums within ten minutes after each meal or after drinking which can effectively prevent acid to damage tooth surfaces.
