Description of the project

Mandate

With more than a hundred years of history and 600,000 members, the FTQ and its affiliated unions constitute the largest union confederation of the province of Quebec. Its members are present in all sectors of economic activities and in every region of Quebec.

The FTQ issued calls for tender for the conception of a new application intended for the working members; Appcom was chosen to conduct this mandate. The project was developed in collaboration with the Belvedere communication firm, which promotes the product to other groups.

Client

Fédération des travailleurs et travailleuses du Québec

Areas of expertise of the project

Mobile application

This new tool, that will be available on iOS and Android platforms, enables to share all the information related to the specific collective agreements to the workers from different locals of the union. As well as providing access to the full collective agreement texts, the application will display the information by categories and in an abbreviated way. It also enables the union members to file complaints and send comments to their union representatives. It will also be possible to save work related information, for personal purposes, such as working hours, trips, and expenditure, in order to calculate all the benefits to which they are entitled. Unions will also be able to use this tool to communicate general or targeted news to the users.

Management system

A management console was also developed in order to update the information included in the application and to manage the news in a fully autonomous way.
