On May 11, 2017, the day after our campaign was covered on CBC News, NDP MPP Cindy Forster raised the issue of paid sick days with the government during Question Period at Queen’s Park.
CBC News has an important story about paid sick days that features personal trainer DeJanai Love.
Like many of us, DeJanai has had to work while sick or injured because GoodLife doesn’t provide any paid sick days.
Why is this? GoodLife is a hugely successful company that can afford to provide paid sick days. GoodLife is a health club company which promotes health and wellness as part of its core philosophy. If other health club companies provide paid sick days, GoodLife can too.
We continue to press GoodLife on this issue. We believe that we will win.
