The public sector inter-union common front will take stock this afternoon at a press conference on the proposed agreement with the government of François Legault.

This proposed agreement, concluded on December 28, provides for salary increases of 17.4% over five years, with a purchasing power protection clause for the last three years of the employment contract. It also contains improvements to collective insurance.

The Inter-Union Common Front is made up of the Confederation of National Unions (CSN), the Centrale des syndicats du Quebec (CSQ), the Federation of Workers of Quebec (FTQ) and the Alliance of Professional and Technical Personnel in Health and Social Services (APTS).

Bodies from the CSQ, the CSN, the APTS and the FTQ began meeting on January 3 to study the government's proposal. They must confirm whether the content of the proposed agreements reached at the central table and at each of the sectoral tables indeed constitutes a global agreement in principle.

If this is the case, union members will have to vote on the agreements at general meetings.
