The Freedom 90 Union

The Freedom 90 Union exists cuz ‘because we want to retire from volunteering at food banks or emergency meal programs—before we are 90 years old!

Volunteers at food banks and emergency meal programs in Ontario have earned the right to speak out about poverty in our communities. Freedom 90 Union members are a new and powerful voice for change.

The Freedom 90 Union demands urgent action by the Government of Ontario to end poverty and make food banks and emergency meal programs unnecessary.’

Our Demands:

1. Lay us off!
The Government of Ontario must ensure that social assistance and minimum wage levels are sufficient for everyone to have adequate housing and to buy their own food.

2. Mandatory retirement by the age of 90!
Many of us have been volunteering for twenty years and there is no end in sight. The Freedom 90 Union demands the Government of Ontario take urgent action to end poverty and make food banks and emergency meal programs unnecessary.

3. Freeze our wages! Or double them!
It doesn’t matter because we are unpaid volunteers.’

    so true……….many seniors have kept the soup kitchens and food banks going in midland. they shouldn’t have to do this. and 200+ volunteers shouldn’t have to help less than 50 people have shelter at night. the gov’ts of our province and country have the money to change this. it just means spending less on other areas, like defence.
