The end of a strike involving government lawyers and notaries in Quebec may be on the horizon, says a union representative.
Francois Desroches Lapointe, a councillor on the board of the Les avocats et notaires de l'État québécois, says 1,050 members have been on strike since October. He says some lawyers and notaries have had to contribute essential services, but about two-thirds of people have not worked at all since the strike began.
“We’ve been on strike for a really long time. People are not getting paid at all, because we don’t have any money in the union funds,” he told Legal Feeds on Monday, but noted members are still committed to the strike.
