Strike Votes and Ratification Votes
Resolution #76: Strike Votes and Ratification Votes (Official French version)
The Labour Code is silent on the obligation to hold a strike vote or a vote on the ratification of the collective agreement.
A CPQ government will add a provision in the Labour Code for a secret ballot fifteen days prior to the beginning of a strike and for a secret ballot to ratify a collective agreement. All employees included in the bargaining unit will have a right to vote. The strike vote will need to be renewed every thirty (30) days.
