Telework: Union decries lack of commitment from Quebec

Telework: Union decries lack of commitment from Quebec

The participation and commitment of the Quebec government in the discussion forum on telework did not meet the expectations of the employees.

It was an observation made by the Union of Professionals and Professionals of the Government of Quebec (SPGQ) after six meetings since January 2022, a mistake on passive listening, he denied.

“Given the employer’s refusal to negotiate the terms and conditions of telework, SPGQ wants to allow a forum to discuss and resolve major issues and irritations,” SPGQ third vice president Guillaume Bouvrette said Thursday. From “obvious”.

Threatening to slam the door of the forum, the union, which did not hide its displeasure, asked Quebec to identify some of the issues related to telework and establish negotiated solutions.

“Whatever the outcome of the forum, the SPGQ upholds the issue of teleworking, especially as we face an intense period of negotiations with a view to renewing several collective agreements, including the public service, Revenue Quebec and the cultural sector,” added Mr. Bouvret.
