The employees of Revenue Quebec could go on strike on May 5


Dissatisfied with the way the negotiations for the renewal of the collective agreement, the union representing the employees of the Quebec Revenue Agency will seek short strike mandates, medium and long term.


Gathered Saturday in Montreal, delegates from Revenu Québec (ARQ), members of the Union of Professionals of the Government of Quebec (SPGQ) have unanimously endorsed a tour vote for various strike mandates including a general strike evenings and weekends.

"The negotiations have stalled because the employer remains adamant and refuses to discuss our demands," lamented the president of the SPGQ, Richard Perron in a statement, describing the attitude of the employer to "contemptuous".

Tour vote for strike mandate will run from 4 to 28 April. The 4,500 unionized in the Québec Revenue Agency could then exercise their right to strike on May 5

According to the union, the gap on overall pay between agency employees and other public sector professionals would be 22%.
