The CSN has announced that locked-out members of the Syndicat des travailleurs de l’information du Journal de Montréal will vote on a new contract offer proposed by the mediator appointed by the Quebec government.
Note that this does not necessarily mean there’s an agreement in principle. The release mentions nothing about
whether the union executive recommends the proposal, whether the employer will accept the proposal, or any details about the proposal itself. (UPDATE: Apparently the CSN is saying the union is, in fact, recommending the proposal, which is pretty huge — oh wait, the union is now denying it has recommended the deal.)
The vote will take place Saturday at 10am at the Palais des congrès, and followed by a press conference.
You’ll recall that the last vote on a proposal, in October, resulted in 89.3% of workers rejecting the offer.
