The strike will lead to the closure of 32 outdoor swimming pools, confirms the spokesperson for the City of Quebec. Only seven outdoor and eight indoor pools will be open.

These pressure tactics are part of the context of the strike called by the Union of Manual Employees of the City of Quebec, in the middle of the National Day long weekend.

In a press scrum on Thursday, Mayor Bruno Marchand regretted the consequences of the labor conflict with blue-collar workers.

“Unfortunately, like any strike, there will be consequences. Fortunately, the heat, what we are told, is that it is ending [jeudi] and the strike has only just begun [vendredi], so if conditions change, we will see with them. For the moment, it’s a few days of strike,” he insisted.
