    Common front and Quebec reach tentative agreement over pay for public sector workers – By Erika Morris (CBC News) / Dec 28, 2023

    Unions will now vote on agreement after months of negotiations

    The common front of unions known in French as the Front commun, which represents about 420,000 public sector workers, said it reached a tentative agreement with the Quebec government around salaries Thursday.

    The unions that make up the common front had previously agreed on working conditions, but negotiations around salaries had stalled. The tentative deal between the common front and Quebec is the most significant movement at the negotiation table in months.

    The common front had been threatening an unlimited strike in the new year if no deal was made. That strike would keep public schools closed as the union represents thousands of teachers and support staff.

    It could take up to three weeks for all the unions affiliated with the common front to have their members vote in favour of the agreement. The unions have said they want a solid agreement to avoid going through the lengthy process more than once.
