Education Minister Bernard Drainville has outlined a seven-point plan for improving Quebec’s education system, including the return of a fast-track diploma system to boost the number of legally qualified teachers.
Join us in our mobilization activities! The School Sector has created an online toolkit with social media tiles, videos and leaflets on the seven targets for our sectoral negotiations.

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.
The results of the most recent RREGOP valuation were published for the period ending December 31, 2020, and one thing is very clear: our pension plan is in excellent financial shape.
Quebec government public sector employees make 12 per cent less than other workers in similar jobs.
Throughout these last few weeks, 24 (more than half) of our school sector unions have met with their school boards’/service centres’ administrators where they presented them with their booklets of sectoral demands for the 2023 negotiations, while at the same time, advising them that we want more than candy, we want a good collective agreement.
The school sector’s (sectoral) demands have been submitted to both the Management Negotiating Committee for English Language School Boards (CPNCA) and the Comité patronal de négociation des centres de services francophones (CPNCF)
The common front of Quebec public sector unions is demanding wage increases above inflation, from two to four per cent over three years, in addition to the equivalent of the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
