Starting last year, the Equal Pay Coalition asked all sitting MPPs to sign the Pledge to be a Pay Equity Champion. So far, only 18 of 107 MPPs have done so, and all are from the NDP.
NDP = 18
Liberal = 0
Progressive Conservative = 0
|Monique Taylor||Hamilton Mountain||NDP|

No Liberal or Progressive Conservative Members signed. This is very disappointing. The Coalition calls on those MPPs who have not signed to take immediate steps to do so and to join the efforts to close Ontario’s gender pay gap.
