Hundreds of thousands of public sector workers took to the streets of Quebec in late October to protest lagging contract talks with the provincial government.

The labour action was organized by the Common Front, a coalition of several public sector unions. The unions collaborated to organize rotating strikes across the province, with further labour action scheduled if negotiations fail to move forward.

Public sector workers in the province have been without a contract since April 1.
