Cégep leadership considers extending classes into holidays as Common Front announces seven-day strike


The Common Front–which represents unionized cégep staff among other public sector employees–has announced seven days of strike action in early December if an agreement is not reached with the Government of Québec. Common Front previously went on strike on two occasions in November. In response to this announcement, Fédération des cégeps President Bernard Tremblay stated that cégep students may have to take classes or exams over the winter holidays to make up for the loss of class time. Tremblay also stated that the Fédération is considering cancelling classes or other options if the strike moves forward.
