Study on the Perceptions of Union Certification Methods and Strike Decrees

Léger Marketing was commissioned by the Montreal Economic Institute to conduct a survey among the Quebec population in order to analyze perceptions regarding:

> The provincial government amending the current law to make it mandatory to hold a secret ballot vote among employees affected by union certification.

> Amend the current law to make it illegal to strike if the strike has not been the object of a secret ballot vote.

Through an online questionnaire, this study was conducted between August 11 and August 14, 2009, among a representative sample of 1,000 Quebeckers, 18 years of age or older.

Using data from the census of the Institut de la statistique du Québec, results were weighted according to gender, age, region, mother tongue, level of education, and the presence of minor children in the household to ensure a sample representative of the adult population of the city of Montreal as a whole.

When pertinent, survey data were compared to those obtained during a survey conducted from September 20 to September 24 for the Conseil du patronat du Québec.
