About construction workers, mainly in the Montreal region, had been involved in the walkouts. Negotiators for the Confedera- tion of National Trade Unions and the Quebec Federation of Labor, representing the work- ers, reached agreement Sunday with employer associations on union security and on the issue of union stewards policing job sites. This paved the way for the return to work.
