After a long prologue, where the questions were explained, here we are in the penultimate scene, when the duelists look into each other’s eyes, while the wind blows, the train whistles, a wind turbine rustles, a seesaw rustles and Éric Gingras. , president of the Centrale des syndicats du Québec, plays the harmonica, a wide-brimmed hat that goes over the eyes.
Will the government draw up its own special law?
Will union members pull out their big guns and go on an indefinite strike?
Everything is possible.
The answer after the break.
- Listen to Richard Martineau’s editorial, where he talks about current affairs with Alexandre Dubé via Radio QUB :
thumbs up, thumbs down
In fact, dear readers, it is you who will make the difference.
Everything rests on your shoulders.
Public sector union members rely on your loyalty, your loyalty, your support.
“Everyone will continue to support us even if our strike makes life difficult for them, because they know that at the end of the day, we are fighting for them, their young children who need teachers and their elderly parents who need care!”
While the government relies on your disgust and impatience.
“The population will change course and withdraw their support for the strikers because parents will be tired of wondering what to do with their children, not to mention all the non-urgent operations that will have to be postponed due to lack of staff in hospitals! “
In short, after the spaghetti western, we will find ourselves in a gladiator film, with you in the role of Caesar, tasked with condemning one of the two protagonists to the galleys with a simple movement of the thumb.
THE GAME IS BEING PLAYED AGAIN!
In recent days, it is as if the film of the events has been torn apart in the projector.
Nothing moved, each party remained in its position.
“First we want to talk about pay!”, proclaimed the trade unionists.
“First we want to talk about labor management!”, replied the government.
“If you don’t come up with a counter offer that gives us something other than a bargain, we’re leaving!” the officials shouted.
“If you don’t present realistic proposals regarding work management, we’ll be back!” said Sonia Lebel.
In short, it was a breakdown.
The trade unionists denounced the inaction of the government, while the government denounced the inertia of the trade unionists.
Since yesterday, at the request of the trade unionists of the Common Front, Quebec has appointed a conciliator to force the two sides to sit down and negotiate.
Better late than never, as someone else says.
Now that everyone has gone to pee, the poker game can finally resume!
WATER IN THE WINE
Currently, the government has every interest in letting the conflict drag on, because the longer it drags on, the more likely people will get bored.
That said, if people feel that the government is showing bad faith, the CAQ risks losing a few more feathers in the next polls…
Everyone will have to put water in their wine if they want to come out of this matchup with their heads held high.
The problem is that each side is super wrinkled.
