Quebec Labour Code

Sections of the Act deny the right of managerial staff in Quebec to bargain collectively regarding their working conditions and do not provide mechanisms for settling disputes in the absence of the right to strike, which formed the basis of the complaint.

Submitted by the Confédération nationale des cadres du Quebec (CNCQ), the Association of Senior Managerial Staff of Health and Social Services (ACSSSS), the Association of Branch Managers of the Société des alcools du Québec (ADDS/SAQ) and the Association of Managerial Staff of the Société des casinos du Québec (ACSCQ) (March 2003).

Those sections of the legislation that deny managerial employees the right to collective bargaining were found not to comply with ILO freedom of association principles. The ILO Committee on Freedom of Association will be reviewing this case at one its upcoming sessions.
