Nursing home workers could finally get a salary boost. In an ongoing collective bargaining agreement with workers' unions, the Quebec government is proposing an 18% wage increase for all full-time CHSLD attendants. Though they've been called "guardian angels" during the health crisis, these employees have been under tremendous strain and Legault has repeatedly acknowledged the need to pay them more.\nThe Conseil du Trésor shared its new proposals on Tuesday.\nPresident of the Treasury, Chrisitan Dubé, shared how the proposal would shape up on his Twitter page.\n"Full-time CHSLD workers will see their annual salaries rise from $42,000 to $51,000 ($26.89/hour), an 18% increase overall," the Treasury says.\nNurses and health care workers were included in this proposal, though negotiations are ongoing.\nTeachers could also see a salary increase if the proposal goes through.\nEntry-level teachers could start at $50,000/year.\nA CBC News report says that even before the pandemic hit Quebec, nursing homes and health care facilities were understaffed, underpaid, and overworked.\nThe Quebec government has admitted that they need to do more to better compensate CHSLD attendants and health care workers, many of whom have been on the front lines since day one.\nLes propositions d’entente de conventions collectives entre le @GouvQc et les principales centrales syndicales sont en ligne sur le site web du @TresorQc https://t.co/Hwy32zIW7k pic.twitter.com/8BaRJu9JJK— Christian Dubé🌈 (@cdube_tresor) May 26, 2020\nEarly this month, Premier François Legault announced salary bonuses for those working full-time in COVID-19 affected residences.\nAs of May 26, a full-time position at a Laval CHSLD pays $22 per hour.\nREAD ALSO: Long Lines Wrapped Through Downtown Montreal As Stores Reopened (VIDEO)\nThe government's proposal would see the salary increases take effect from now until 2023.\nAccording to La Presse, the government is aiming to settle this agreement before the end of June.\nJ'ai rencontré le PDG du CISSS de Laval, Christian Gagné & le directeur de la santé publique de Laval, Dr Jean-Pierre Trépanier pour discuter de la situation des CHSLD à Laval.
