Last week, the STM has made to the labour Court, to order the union to cease any work slowdown.
The Société de transport de Montréal (STM) announced the filing of a “global offer and the final” the Union of maintenance employees.
In a press release issued Monday, the STM is said to have made the offer after more than 170 sessions of negotiations.
This union represents 2400 employees assigned to the maintenance of the bus ; it is attached to the Federation of employees of the public service of the CSN. The negotiations are particularly laborious over the past year. There has even been a strike illegal, for which the labour Court had to intervene.
In its press release, the STM reminds that it wanted to begin negotiations as early as December 2016, one year before the expiry of the collective agreement.
Last week, the STM has made to the labour Court, to order the union to cease any work slowdown, since these slowdowns, according to it, have the effect of reducing the number of buses in circulation compared to the years 2016 and 2017.
The STM did not want to comment further on Monday and the union did not wish to react to the moment.
