QUEBEC | The majority of the population remains confined, many shops are still closed, but the slamming in the area of construction, can and will take place for the next election to organize.
This is what was stated by the minister of Labour, Jean Boulet, at the first parliamentary committee virtual the national Assembly, Friday.
“It was a reflection on a postponement of six months, a year, but we finally opted for a raiding that is sanitary, with practices that are, once again, accepted by the public health,” he said.
The unions will, however, be required to comply with several rules already put in place by public health to limit the spread of the COVID-19.
First of all, gatherings of more than five people will not be encouraged, he said.
The unions will also have to abandon the promotional material such as brochures that go hand in hand, and opt instead for electronic means such as, do the promotion on social networks.
Also, displacements, inter-regional, will be prohibited in compliance with public health rules in the regions of Quebec currently “closed” as Charlevoix, the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean or Abitibi-Témiscamingue, among others.
“It is a big turn in terms of manners and election of practices to be followed,” warned the minister, Jean Boulet.
This last mentioned, inter alia, the gradual recovery of activities in the field of construction to justify its decision to authorize the slamming.
