Léger Marketing has been commissioned by the Economic Institute of Montreal in order to conduct a survey with Quebecers in order to evaluate:
> The support for the position of the Charest government and the unions in negotiations between unions of the employees of the public service and the Govenment of Quebec.
>The support for a major demonstration organized by the Front commun syndical de la fonction publique et parabublique scheduled for March 20th 2010.
> The views of Quebecers with respect to the position that the Charest government should adopt regarding job security of public servants.
This study was conducted over the Internet, between February 22nd and 24th, 2010 from a representative sample of 1,000 Quebecers, 18 years of age and older. A probability sample of this size has a margin of error of ± 3%, 19 times out of 20.
