Regine Laurent was surprised at the union’s intentions and tactics to obtain an indefinite general strike order without taking a stand.
According to him, many parents who were behind the early childhood educators are starting to steam out.
“The question I’m asking myself is whether the union will maintain parental support, which is very important because it’s good that you have the support of those you need when you go on strike? Throughout the strike,” the former nurse says.
By the way, a little earlier plan Le Bilan, FIPEQ President, Valerie Grenon noted that the government’s offer is 2%.
Recall that the union rejected a last-ditch pay raise of $ 30 an hour for educators who work 40 hours a week.
However, the former head of the Quebec Interprofessional Health Federation argues that the union has benefited greatly by extending the offer to more workers.
“I learned this afternoon that an offer had been put forward at the negotiating table that the government would be willing to pay $ 30 an hour to those who do 32, 35 and 40 hours,” he said.
One thing is for sure, according to Régine Laurent, strike is not an easy task.
“When I ask about a strike, you can not imagine how my stomach hurts because I know what it is. I have been involved in two strikes. I know you put weight on your shoulders to see that, ”Ms. Laurent insists.
