Lester B. Pearson teachers vote 51% in favour of new contract
Work-to-rule campaign still in effect after months of rotating walkouts
Lester B. Pearson School Board teachers have voted in favour of a new collective agreement with the Quebec government.
- Extra-curricular activities put on hold in some Montreal schools
- Quebec and public workers unions reach agreement-in-principle
- Tens of thousands take to Montreal streets in latest public sector strike
The vote passed narrowly at 51 per cent Wednesday night during a special general meeting. The Pearson Teachers Union represents over 3,000 teachers at the school board.
However, teachers voted in favour of extending a work-to-rule campaign.
Quebec unions representing public sector workers struck an agreement-in-principle in December after months of stalled talks over collective agreements with the provincial government.
Teachers, healthcare professionals and other civil servants held rotating walkouts across the province for months to protest contracts and budget cuts.
