This gain is in addition to those made at the sectoral table on conditions of employment which are approximately 60 million per year. For example, there will be less per student in kindergarten class 5 years from the next school year, under the tentative agreement reached between the government and the unions Couillard Federation of Teachers (FSE-CSQ).

At the center table, the Treasury has agreed to enhance the offer to some 100 000 teachers on salary relativity. Remember that this exercise is intended to correct inconsistencies in wage scales.

Initially, Quebec offered to teachers of 120 550 million in 2019 that he intended to pay all state employees in terms of salary relativity. Teachers at the top of the ladder saw their wages jump by 2.5%, but those of the 16 lower levels had to settle for less than about 1%.

The total bill related to the salary relativity and password 550-580000000. This is an overall increase of state compensation 2.4% – instead of the 2.3% forecast in the government’s offer.

Note that the government already had some leeway in its initial budget of 550 million, which allowed him to wipe the concession to 20,000 college professors. They will receive a wage increase of 5% under the salary relativity because their job category is one of the few who had not been reassessed in the past.

The government’s offer also includes wage increases of 3% in five years for all state employees. But Quebec has already indicated that it has a margin of maneuver to give more.

Gains unrequited

Under the agreement in principle reached at the sectoral table of teachers, the maximum size of a kindergarten class 5 years will be 19 instead of 20, and the average increase from 18 to 17. The supporting shell composition class, intended to promote the integration of students with learning difficulties, will increase by 50%. When it was announced in 2010, it was $ 20 million. Some 400 teaching positions will be created full time in vocational training and adult education. All sick days (6) become marketable.

“We have managed to reduce the government but above all, we managed to make gains. , “Said Josée Scalabrini, president of the FSE-CSQ yesterday at a press conference.

The 60 million obtained have nothing to do with the 80 million announced by the Government Couillard at the end of November. Remember that this announcement represents the addition of 600 teaching positions full time and 200 professionals, as well as the creation of 72 kindergarten classes 4 years.

According to Ms. Scalabrini, the ESF has made ​​gains without consideration, which was confirmed by the office of the Minister of Education, François Blais. “We wanted to achieve a negotiated settlement, and we are pleased with this agreement,” said her publicist, Julie White.

The ESF represents about 62,000 teachers, two thirds of the primary and secondary. Negotiations resumed yesterday between the Autonomous Federation of Teachers (AWF) and the government. The union had 34,000 members on strike for three days last week.
