The Fédération du commerce (FC – CSN) has announced the conclusion of a fifteenth settlement in the hotel sector. Workers at the Marriott Château Champlain, a large hotel with 610 rooms, ratified the contents of the 2020 – 2024 collective agreement. This agreement includes all the platform elements that the hotel unions established in coordinated bargaining.

Bargaining is ongoing in nine hotels to secure agreements comparable to those already reached elsewhere, notably at the Château Champlain. These agreements provide for increases totalling approximately 8 per cent for a four-year contract, group insurance improvements, and measures to better protect workers in times of crisis in order to prepare for a recovery that will benefit the entire tourism sector.

About
Some 24 unions representing 2,500 hotel workers in Quebec are bargaining in a coordinated fashion. This is the tenth round of coordinated bargaining in the sector conducted under the aegis of the Federation of Commerce (FC-CSN). The CF-CSN is one of eight professional federations that make up the Confédération des syndicats nationaux (CSN). Founded 100 years ago in September 1921, the CSN today represents more than 320,000 workers in all sectors of activity.
