More than 90,000 kids affected as Quebec day care workers strike
from CTV News
Parents of more than 90,000 kids in Quebec had to make alternate arrangements Monday as the province's subsidized home day care workers staged a one-day strike in their demand for better pay. Nearly 14,000 members of the FIPEQ union representing daycare workers hoisted picket signs on Monday, more than seven months after their collective bargaining agreement with the province expired. The union is asking for compensation for real hours worked and better conditions for its members in a province-run day care system that charges much lower fees compared to the rest of the country.
