The Laval Region Education Union (SERL) rejected the agreement of 68% principle concluded with the Legault government.

The SERL thus becomes the first union affiliated with the Autonomous Federation of Education (FAE) to speak out against the agreement.

The union, which represents more than 6,000 members, met in a general meeting Thursday evening.

Previously, union delegates had recommended SERL members reject the agreement at the time of the vote.

The Alliance of Professors of Montreal (APPM), also affiliated with the FAE, adopted the agreement in principle early Friday morning, following a long general assembly. /p>

This agreement is adopted even if it will not resolve all the problems in the education network, specifies the APPM in a statement published on its social networks.

Out of respect for union democracy and all teachers directly concerned by the negotiations, the Alliance will refrain from commenting on the content of the agreement in principle until local meetings of all unions affiliated with the FAE, we continue.

Unlike the SERL, the APPM, bringing together 9,300 union members, had chosen to abstain and #x27;had made no recommendation to its members.

Among the nine unions affiliated with the FAE, three of them recommended to their members not to accept the agreement concluded by the Federation. In addition to the SERL, the Haute-Yamaska ​​Teachers' Union (SEHY) and the Pointe-de-l'Île Education Union (SEPÎ) have issued such a recommendation.

< p class="StyledBodyHtmlParagraph-sc-48221190-4 hnvfyV">At the general assembly on Wednesday evening, the SEPÎ still approved the agreement narrowly, at 58.5%.

Conversely, two other education unions affiliated with the FAE encouraged their members to accept the agreement, namely that of Outaouais (SEO) and that of l' West of Montreal (SEOM).

For the agreement in principle to be ratified, 5 of the 9 unions affiliated with the FAE and a majority of the 66,500 members must accept it, according to a principle of double majority. The final decision will be announced on February 7.

The series of votes, which began Wednesday evening, must continue until January 31.

As part of the negotiations surrounding the renewal of their collective agreement, FAE members observed 22 strike days. A proposal for an agreement in principle finally occurred on December 28.

Approximately 40% of teachers in the province's school network are represented by the FAE.
