MONTREAL – The city’s 8,000 white-collar workers voted 81.4 per cent in favour of a new seven years contract.
It features a two per cent annual increase for the first 4 years, which would be from 2012 to 2015, with smaller increases until 2018.
“I’m very please with the agreement. I’m very pleased because it’s a win-win situation,” said Montreal mayor Denis Coderre.
The contract also includes changes to the pension plan, as demanded by the provincial government.
The workers had been without a contract for more than four years.
They called off their rotating strikes in late February after intense negotiations with the city.
