The Union of Workers of Drummondville pharmaceutical giant McKesson, without an employment contract for a year, wants a return to the negotiating table. He is asking for a salary increase to close a gap of nearly 25% with their colleagues in Montreal and Quebec.
According to union members, colleagues earn a quarter more than they do for reasons they call “obscure.»
According to them, the multinational considers them to be second-rate employees. During a press briefing on Tuesday noon, the 85 union members asked the employer to resume negotiations and improve its salary offer, in order to reduce this gap.
The workers will hold a meeting next weekend, during which they could adopt a strike mandate.
