The managers should be made to pay for their mismanagement and not the employees

Now when it comes to the province of Quebec and the pensions of its municipal employees the most reasonable, practical solution to pay of the heavy debt in Quebec is for all the politicians and manager’s salary to be cut by 50 percent as well as their related pensions after all it was under their leaderships  that the debts have arisen… and not the employees, Notice that the Municipal managers are still giving themselves big raises ..  Top managers at the Montreal Transit Corporation, (MTC), or STM in French, are getting big raises for the 3rd straight year.  The average increase for this year was nearly four per cent and the average salary for the top dozen or so bosses is pegged at more than 200-thousand dollars while salaries have increased, but not the quality of service. The MTC’s own yearly report says metro service interruptions due to mechanical reasons soared more than 20 per cent last year over the year before.

The Workers are  not to blame for the Quebec pension problem:

.

Stealing from the employees pension fund to pay off the debts is immoral.

.

Municipal workers rightfully do stage rallies against Bill 3 as hearings on the immoral  legislation get underway.

.

Quebec, and  Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard,  is falsely trying to snatch back promised pension money by fiat through its proposed Bill 3 pension reform legislation, without the  legal process of bankruptcy. The bill would override existing contracts, and force a restructuring of some 216 different defined benefit pension plans in 1,100 municipalities across Quebec. The bill would give municipalities the power to suspend indexation of any workers retired as of Jan. 1, 2014.

FTQ’s secretary general Serge Cadieux said  “The government is focusing all its attention to the demands made by certain mayors without considering any other suggestions made by the unions representing salaried municipal workers,”

The Montreal Police Brotherhood said that police officers will have to double their pension contributions.  “There will be no police officer who will want to come to work in Montreal,” said the brotherhood’s president Yves Francoeur.
