Poor economy drags Quebec construction workers’ vacation pay


A poor economy is dragging the construction industry down with it and is being blamed for another decline in the annual vacation pay for construction workers, says the Commission de la construction du Québec, the Montreal Gazette has reported.

The CCQ (Commission de la construction de Quebec) reported that vacation pay is down three per cent compared to figures for last year, making it the third annual decline.

Approximately 147,000 vacation pay cheques have been issued for a total of approximately $364 million. The two-week construction holiday this year runs from July 24 to Aug. 6.
