RENEWAL OF THE DECREE...

Many building service workers and employers are wondering if there is an upcoming salary increase expected soon. The current Decree expired on October 30th, 2017, following the last salary increase. Before a new decree is passed, an agreement must first take place between the Union parties and the Employers. An agreement was reached in December 2017, when their collective agreement was renewed.

Following this first step, early in 2018, the Parity Committee submitted a request to the Quebec Government and asked that the clauses, listed in the agreement, that are applicable to the decree, be included in a new decree. These clauses, which include salary increases, would then be applied to the new Decree and regulation respecting building service employees in the Montréal region, once it is passed by the government.

Once the request is submitted, the Ministère du travail must evaluate the working conditions listed in the agreement before rendering its decision, which may take several months. As long as the Government has not passed the Decree, the clauses listed in the old Decree continue to apply. Upcoming salary increases will only be applicable once the Decree is in effect.

As of March 20th, 2019, the government has reached another milestone in this long process : the Decree has been prepublished at the Gazette officielle du Québec. This is a notice of intent to publish the new decree.

Following its prepublication, the next step is the publishing of the Decree, at which point, the Decree comes into effect. This date will only be known to us right before its official publication.

We will keep you posted, if there are any new developments regarding this matter.
