Canadians are being called upon to stand in solidarity with Tim Hortons workers today at labour protests planned across the country.

The Canada-wide day of action organized by Fight for $15 & Fairness, labour unions, and workers rights advocacy groups is taking place in support of Tim Hortons’ workers facing cutbacks to benefits and paid breaks implemented to offset the minimum wage increase that came into effect in Ontario on January 1, 2018.

Twenty-five protests outside Tim Hortons stores are planned for today, Friday, January 19, and not just in Ontario like the widespread protests that occurred last week. Protests are planned in cities from Halifax to Vancouver and everywhere in between.
