The members of the Haute-Yamaska ​​Education Union (SEHY) narrowly accepted the agreement in principle between Quebec and the FAE to the tune of 50.58%. They therefore tip the scales and ensure that the agreement is ratified.

So far, four local unions affiliated with the FAE have accepted the agreement, while four others rejected it.

The 3,000 Estrie teachers from SEHY were the last to speak out.

We are improving services, working conditions, work organization and salaries.

A quote from Sonia LeBel, President of the Treasury Board

It is obvious that negotiation does not solve everything. We will build on the progress made to continue working on certain elements such as class composition, for example. We have heard the teachers' message, she continues.

Recall that the SEHY executive recommended that its members vote against this agreement . This provides for salary increases of 17.4% over five years, but it is generally the measures targeting class composition which give rise to discontent.

The FAE will also hold a press conference on Monday morning in Montreal, during which its president, Mélanie Hubert, will take stock of the state of the national negotiations.
