The SQEES-298 (FTQ) also represents childcare workers. Our members in this sector, the vast majority of whom are women, offer invaluable services for families.
In recent years, workers in this sector have also suffered budget cuts and the impact of controversial laws adopted under a gag order by the Quebec government. On every occasion, the FTQ and the SQEES-298 (FTQ) were there to defend childcare workers. The issue of adequate funding for childcare services has a direct impact on the working conditions of these thousands of women.
Today, we accompany them in their struggle to improve their working conditions and to find solutions for offering families better services. Childcare centres are recognized throughout the world as a progressive measure for families. The SQEES-298 (FTQ), on behalf of its members, defends this vision.
