    Impact Cleaning Services operates an elaborate sub-contracting scheme
that denies workers the basic protections covered in the Employment Standards
Act such as WSIB coverage, Employment Insurance, vacation time, CPP
contributions and sometimes even minimum wage.
    Community organizations and politicians have united to demand that
building owners adopt the Responsible Property Services Code, recently drafted
by a group comprised of building owners, asset managers, as well as worker and
community organizations.
