All stakeholders agree that a locally appointed board of directors, with full representation from the Community and socio-economic groups in each region, as well as students, staff and alumni of each institution, would allow services to be tailored to each region`s priorities. It`s time, the time has come! This is what students, teachers, support staff, professionals and socio-economic partners… A Quebec government decree redeploying education workers in the health sector and ending collective agreements has raised concerns among teachers and school leaders. Travis Fast – Martin Dumas, “COVID-19 and Public Education Collective Agreements in Quebec” Canadian Law of Work Forum (March 20, 2020): lawofwork.ca/covid-19-and-public-education-collective-agreements-in-quebec/ This adjustment to teachers` salaries will complement the salary requirements that are imposed at the cross-sector level that apply to all public sector employees. The negotiation process, which began in 2007, has never been easy. After years of discussions with the employer, the presence of a Ministry of Labour conciliator and the exemplary mobilization and solidarity of the members, the union was proud to conclude the negotiations. The agreement in principle submitted to the general meeting was found to be satisfactory for the union, the content of which corresponded exactly to the agreement reached with the employer at the end of October 2010. On the morning of Thursday, March 19, 2020, the Canadian press was riddled with news that the Quebec government had suspended collective agreements in the public education sector. In its online edition, CTV Montreal has led the story COVID-19: Teachers of Quebec city in shock after the government suspends collective agreements. As has been reported in history, the president of the Centrale des Syndicates du Qu├ębec (CSQ) said that they were told that all their collective agreements will no longer apply when certain provisions are in place, such as emergency measures. The province`s largest teachers` union, which represents 125,000 education workers, said the College`s news is causing a great deal of fear for its members and is not in a position to reassure them. At a general meeting on May 15, McGill University auditors approved an agreement in principle recently reached before an arbitrator appointed by the Ministry of Labour. The agreement, which concludes more than two years of negotiations, is the first collective agreement for these workers.
