While waiting for the agreement in principle to be presented to the workers, they suspended indefinitely their general strike which had been called on 10 September 2022.

Details of the initial agreement will be presented to members at a general meeting in the coming days. “Members will then be able to vote on it,” the Quebec government’s Confederation of Professionals and Professionals (SPGQ) said, details surrounding the agreement in principle were not immediately disclosed.

And 455 striking workers had already, at 72%, rejected an initial agreement on September 10.

Employees have been demanding a higher salary increase than that granted by Lotto Quebec, particularly due to inflationary pressures in recent months.

The strike had an impact on the population, particularly due to the suspension of the Lotto 6/49 draw, a decision misunderstood by the union, which accused Lotto-Quebec of preferring losing money over negotiating increases.

Renaud Dugas, a spokesperson for Lotto Quebec, confirmed that these problems still existed on Tuesday evening, explaining that Crown teams were still working on them.

Loto-Québec also had “technical issues” on Sunday that prevented it from selling and checking some lottery tickets, except for scratch cards and bets made with Mise-O-Jeu.
