Title: Quebec. daycare workers begin rotating strikes
Post by: CareDC on October 25, 2010, 05:00:09 PM
Tens-of-thousands of parents will have to make alternate plans for their children this week as 12,900 home daycare workers in Quebec launch four days of pressure tactics.

Starting Monday the workers will hold half-day strikes in regions across the province including the Outaouais, Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region, Quebec's North Shore and Abitibi-Témiscamingue.

The rotating strikes will hit home daycare centres in the Montreal area on Thursday. A province-wide, day long walkout is planned for Nov. 10.

"We tried a lot of things. We tried the soft measures. Now we are in strike process,"
"These people are paid under the minimum wage actually. Around $6 or $7 an hour. So we ask for better pay for them," said Lafrenière.
