The FNEEQ decided to file a petition in accordance with article 53 of the Quebec Labour Code
On November 9, 2010 at our last General Meeting, the negotiating committee presented an agreement in principle that was subsequently adopted at 100% by the members at the meeting.
The bargaining process that began in 2007 was never easy. After many years of discussions with the employer, the presence of a conciliator from the ministère du Travail (Ministry of Labour) and the exemplary mobilization and solidarity of the members, the union was proud to conclude bargaining. The agreement in principle that was presented to the General Meeting was deemed satisfactory for the union and its contents were exactly the same as the agreement reached with the employer at the end of October 2010.
