Home daycares hold one-day strike

14 000 home daycare workers ramped up contract pressure tactics Monday, by holding a one-day strike.

The workers affiliated with the Fédération des intervenantes en petite enfance du Québec (FIPED-CSQ) protested in front of the family minister Francine Charbonneau's offices across the province against the lack of negotiations from the Liberal government.

Their union wants to force the government to be quicker to negotiate.  They've been on going since October 15, 2013.

Main sticking points include salary and a more balanced work-home life.  

Almost 100,000 children are affected by the strike.
