Signing of a new collective agreement between the City and its blue-collar workers

Signing of a new collective agreement between the City and its blue-collar worke

Châteauguay, January 30, 2018 – On Tuesday, January 30, Ville de Châteauguay and its blue-collar workers officially signed a new collective agreement binding the two parties until 2023.

Endorsed by both the City Council and the blue-collar employees, this historic eight-year agreement retroactively covers the period from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2023. The City now benefits from greater flexibility on the part of the workers, in particular with respect to working hours, which henceforth make it possible to cover the operational needs as well as those of the citizens at all times, weekdays, evenings and weekends. It also allows rallying support from private enterprises, in addition to its workforce, among other things, to improve and accelerate the removal of snow on certain occasions.

“We are very pleased with the outcome of the negotiations and with this agreement, which meets the needs of both parties and those of the citizens, because it allows a more efficient management of the workforce and improved public services.” said the mayor of Châteauguay, Pierre-Paul Routhier.

In terms of wages, the agreement provides for annual increases for workers of the order of 2.5% for the years 2016 to 2020 and 2% for the years 2021 to 2023.

Let’s remember that the agreement in principle was submitted to all blue-collar employees on November 30 before being ratified by the Municipal Council. Employees voted in favor of this agreement at 82%.

The Blue-collar Workers' Union of Ville de Châteauguay represents 85 permanent and temporary members who work in various municipal services such as public works, engineering and vie citoyenne.
