When a public administration takes charge of services for citizens, it has a responsibility to provide them at the lowest possible cost. It is taxpayers, after all, who pay for these costs, which include in particular the working conditions governed by the collective agreements of the public sector employees who provide these services. In the case of the City of Montreal, $2.9 billion will be collected this year in municipal taxes, while the overall remuneration of its employees will total $2.4 billion. This Economic Note provides an overview of the working conditions of City of Montreal employees.
