The SAQ’s employee union believes that the Crown corporation is unnecessarily duplicating its structure to market cannabis.

The union’s acting president, Katia Lelièvre, is urging the Société des alcools du Québec to take advantage of the staff and delivery network already in place to set up the future Quebec Cannabis Society (SQC).

The SEMB-SAQ are lobbying throughout the Easter weekend, distributing leaflets throughout the province’s SAQ branches.

Katia Lelièvre emphasizes that the SAQ’s staff is trained in so-called responsible sales and knows how to manage difficult customers.

In addition, 70 percent of SEMB-SAQ members work part-time, averaging 10 to 12 hours per week. The union believes that it would be natural to allow these employees to complete their workweek in the new SAQ subsidiary.
