On December 12, the Legault Government offered the public sector a 7% salary increase over 5 years.
Earlier this week, Statistics Canada published the teachers’ salaries from across Canada for the 2017-2018 school year.
The publication (available here: https://www150.statcan.
“This is insufficient. This year, inflation in Quebec has risen to over 2%. Simply to maintain our diminished purchasing power, it will require at least 2% per year. This does not include the countless other years with insignificant salary increases which were much lower than inflation. Every year we slip further and further behind. Why aren’t teachers respected in this province? Our buying power is always decreasing. Very disappointing!”
