The common front intersyndical public sector begins a second sequence of strike days this week, because it considers that progress has been inadequate at the bargaining table.
The common front, representing about 400,000 of 500,000 state employees, held beginning Monday two strike days to turn round by region.
Thus, Monday and Tuesday, affected days are those of the Outaouais, Abitibi-Témiscamingue, the Laurentians, Lanaudière, the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean and Nord-du-Québec.
On 12 and 13 November, it was the turn of Estrie, Montérégie, the Centre-du-Québec, Mauricie, Québec-Chaudière-Appalaches, Lower St. Lawrence, the North Shore and Gaspésie-Les-Îles-de-la-Madeleine. Similarly, those days, civil servants and workers in the Quebec public service, as well as the union of Revenu Québec débraieront.
The other regions will be affected by the rotating strike next week.
The Quebec government tabled new offers on Friday. He has reshuffled the order of years gels and wage increases of 1% over five years and added $ 550 million in salary relativity exercise to adjust the thousands of employees of pay scales. These offers were however rejected out of hand by both the common front by the other unions.
