But the extension of the working week to 40 hours a week was proposed by the Quebec government. During such work week, the government offer will increase the compensation to $ 22.27 in the first phase and $ 29.20 in the 10th.e The minister underlined.

Thanks to his offer the Minister talks about “a substantial increase in the salaries of academics”. He argues that in some cases wage increases can reach 17%.

But the Federation of Early Childhood Workers, affiliated with CSQ, argues that the offer includes a $ 50 bonus for 40 hours a week, and not a percentage pay rise. Premiums are not calculated in the calculation of the pension plan, for example, rejects FIPEQ.
