Montra006c, Thursday, May 13, 2004 The Syndicat des fonctionnaires municipaux de Montra006c (CUPE-FTQ) was distressed to learn of the death of Mario Quintal, following an occupational accident, which took place on Thursday morning, April 29. A specialized group leader with the Maison de la culture in Notre-Dame-de-Grc0065, Mr. Quintal was preparing the stage for the next days presentation when he fell from a height of about 10 feet. Unconscious, he was transported to the Montreal General Hospital where he died on May 9, without ever having regained consciousness.

On May 14, the CSST will carry out an additional investigation before issuing its report, which should shed some light on the circumstances of the death of this white collar worker who had been employed by the City in this position for the past 15 years.

The Union offers its sincere condolences to Mr. Quintals family, friends and co-workers.
