Étude sur l'évolution du pouvoir d'achat des salariés de l'administration québécoise durant la décennie 2000

This study on the evolution of Québec government employee compensation in the first decade of the 2000s meets the Institut’s general objective of disseminating objective data on different aspects of Québec society. Given that the compensation paid to Québec government employees forms the basis for the annual comparison carried out by the Institut, the data on the evolution of this compensation are a complement to the information available to employers and unions in this sector. This report is a follow-up on the document published in the early 2000s on the evolution of the buying power of Québec government employees in the 1990s.

The study presents the following data for all Québec government employees and each employment category: salary evolution, global compensation costs and costs of other compensation components from 1999–2000 to 2009–2010. The evolution of the average disposable income for all Québec workers is described in order to compare it with that of Québec government employees. This report also gives an overview of the economic and labour market environments, as well as the main issues pertaining to collective agreement negotiations in the Québec civil service in the first decade of the 2000s.

The general public, unions, employers and other actors in the labour market will be able to consult this report to find data on the evolution of Québec government employee compensation.
