The city of Montreal plans to reduce staffing by 2,205 posts over the next five years, Mayor Denis Coderre announced at a press conference Thursday morning.
In his first major move since his appointment to the director general post in December, Alain Marcoux is recommending the city abolish one out of every two posts that were vacant as of December 2013, except for police and firefighters. In addition, only half of those who retire or leave for other reasons over the next five years will be replaced.
Over 10 years, these moves will result in savings of $2 billion, Coderre said.
