Everything indicates that teachers will go on strike as planned this Wednesday April 14 between midnight and 9:30 in the morning. As mentioned by the president of the Syndicat du personnel de l’enseignement des Hautes-Rivières, Daniel Boisjoli to CHIP 101.9 last week, the employers were seeking an injunction from the Superior Court of Quebec to invalidate this day of strike.
Note that this day affects the schools of the Centre de service scolaire des Hauts-Bois-de-l’Outaouais as well as the Western Quebec School Board.
The Superior Court of Quebec accepted the arguments presented by the Syndicates. The judge considers that it is the Tribunal administratif du travail (TAT) which has the jurisdiction to rule on the merits of the case, not the Superior Court. The strike of April 14 is therefore, for the moment, maintained.
