Hydro Quebec Collective Agreement

Hydro-Québec is pleased to announce that the agreement in principle on the early renewal of collective agreements has been ratified by a very large majority of members of the CUPE union coalition. Note that Hydro-Québec`s Professional Union of Engineers had already accepted the agreement. Hydro-Québec management would like to acknowledge the hard work and professionalism of the unions in these negotiations. It also wants to recognize the responsible approach of its employees and union representatives when it comes to opting for the renewal of collective agreements before the conclusion of collective agreements. The most important sectors are communications, social services, education, hydropower, municipalities, air transport, public transport and universities. The union has waged high-level campaigns for health, safety and public services and has worked hard against privatization and the exit of public services in Quebec.
