After just over three months of negotiations, the City of Deux-Montagnes announced the signing of a new collective agreement for the Deux-Montagnes/Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac Intermunicipal Fire Service. Spanning five years, the agreement is retroactive to January 1st and will expire on December 31, 2028.
The administration and the union reached an agreement following a brief negotiation process conducted with respect and openness. “I want to thank all the participants at the negotiation table for their commitment and valuable collaboration throughout this process, which allowed us to quickly conclude an agreement and continue our common objectives,” stated Denis Martin, the mayor of Deux-Montagnes.
Jean-François Chartrand-Daoust, president of the Quebec firefighters’ union (SCFP 7191), Deux-Montagnes local section, also expressed satisfaction with the new collective agreement. “The Deux-Montagnes firefighters’ union is very proud of the agreement reached, which was accepted by a large majority of the members. I thank, on their behalf, the city’s general management and the union executive for the work accomplished and the smooth process.”
This marks the second collective agreement since the implementation of a full-time firefighter structure three years ago. It covers 16 permanent firefighters and 8 temporary firefighters. The City of Deux-Montagnes provides its fire safety services to the City of Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac under an agreement.
