Private Daycares Closed on Wednesday

Despite the sanctions of up to $5,000 per day for each day of the strike, the private daycares will go ahead with their leverage by closing down this Wednesday.

L’Association des garderies privées du Québec (AGPQ) wants to protest against the $15 Million in cuts imposed by the Marois Government. The association’s president, Sylvain Lévesque is also challenging the sanctions announced last week by the Minister of Family, Nicole Léger, which could amount to $ 5,000 per day for the first day of the strike.

The Marois government “attempts to demobilize the movement,” says Levesque, who has gathered over 10,000 people.
The President of the AGPQ, who last week, confessed that the sanctions had made her hesitate at first now fully believes to be fully within her rights to go on strike. To circumvent the possible sanctions, the AGPQ is using one of the five days available to close their daycare establishments during the year.

In addition to going out into the streets on Wednesday, the owners of nurseries are organizing team meetings and teacher training. To mock Pauline Marois who had participated in a casserole protests and brought the CarréRouge to challenge the rising tuition, members AGPQ using pots and pans and blue squares.

The AGPQ will organize another day of protest on May 30.
