Villa Maria: Agreement in principle adopted!

MONTRÉAL, March 31, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Members of the non-teaching personnel section of the Syndicat des enseignantes et enseignants de Villa Maria  CSN,  Villa Maria High School's teachers' union, voted unanimously to accept the agreement in principle reached with the school's management in a general meeting held March 25.

For union president Mathieu Morin, the successful negotiation of this first collective agreement for Villa Maria's non-teaching staff is an important victory.

"It was a tough battle, but we succeeded in making headway and our members are now in a better position for it," he said, noting that it took 35 bargaining meetings over 19 months and a one-day walkout to arrive at a suitable agreement with management.

"Among the key highlights are the matching of pay scales with those in public school boards and a clause circumscribing recourse to subcontracting," applauded Mr. Morin.

The collective agreement will be in force for a three-year period.

The Fédération nationale des enseignantes et des enseignants du Québec (FNEEQ-CSN) represents over 34,000 members in Quebec CEGEPs, private institutions and universities. The private institutions are part of the federation's Regroupement privé, which includes 42 unions representing some 3,700 members. FNEEQ-CSN is affiliated with the Confédération des syndicats nationaux (CSN).
