Recently, the Quebec government released a report entitled “La présence syndicale au Québec en 2010“. It revealed that the unionization rate of Quebec’s total labour force is of 39.6%. This is the highest rate in North America (by a decent margin). More than 1.3 million workers in Quebec are governed by a collective agreement. The report also mentioned that in the last decade, there has been a decreasing trend of union across North America. Even Quebec’s rate decreased from 40.9% to 39.6%.
