On Monday, Front commun negotiators at the central bargaining table were presented with a comprehensive offer by Treasury Board representatives. The Front commun will take time to study the offer.

This refusal will have a very significant impact on the compensation received by many public-sector workers, including thousands of women, starting April 1.

In light of the Treasury Board’s latest offers emailed earlier today, it seems the government needs another reminder.

The package lacks clarity. It provides a one-sided managerial vision, which takes little into consideration of our proposed solutions.
The Government’s Offers are an Insult to 420,000 Public Sector Workers
Stretched beyond thin, public services are being buffeted by an unprecedented labour shortage, in addition to record inflation. And faced with this crisis, all the Legault government can think to do is make public sector workers poorer.
