Press release
Common Front on Strike on November, 6th 2023

3 November 2023

On November 6, 420,000 Common Front workers will be on strike for the first time. They will be in front of schools, CEGEP, hospitals and CIUSSSS to demonstrate their dissatisfaction with the government’s lack of seriousness in negotiations.

The SEU 800, is part of the Common Front and represents over 1300 members working in various support staff positions in the Central Quebec, English Montreal, Lester B Pearson, New Frontier and Riverside School Boards.

For years, the 420,000 members of the Common Front have held the education and healthcare sector at arm’s length, and without improvements to their working conditions, the daily lives of all Quebecers will suffer.

That’s why protecting our public services is everybody’s business!

We invite all those who are available to go to the various picket sites of the members of the SEU 800 to support them in these negotiations, which have been going on for over a year without any progress.
