CALL to ACTION! Stop the rise of precarious and insecure jobs that damage workers' health in five concrete steps

Insecure jobs are on the rise not just in the private sector, but also within the broader public sector (healthcare, education, childcare, settlement, community and social service agencies). See our infographic highlighting damaging health impacts from precarious jobs. We call on leaders within public sector to champion an internally driven change movement to reverse this unhealthy trend. 

To kickstart the process, Access Alliance is adopting an agency-level Good Jobs Strategy to put five concrete steps into practice. We call on other agencies to do the same. Download our infographic poster, read our blog, and visit our Good Jobs web link to learn about how to build pathways to good jobs, starting from your agency.
