Vancouver Airport Authority and Public Service Alliance of Canada Negotiations Ongoing
August 27, 2013
The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) Local 20221 issued a notice to strike commencing at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 30, 2013 at Vancouver International Airport.
Airport operations are not affected by the notice to strike.
Vancouver International Airport will remain open and operating in a safe and efficient manner should a strike occur.
Federal regulations require essential employees be in place to ensure the safety and security of travellers and airport facilities. The Airport Authority and the PSAC have a Maintenance of Activities Agreement, reached on August 23, which ensures employees in these essential roles will continue to work alongside management.
The next scheduled dates for bargaining between Vancouver Airport Authority and the PSAC are set for August 28 and 29, 2013. The Airport Authority remains committed to reaching a negotiated settlement that is fair for both parties.
All updates about airport operations will be posted on www.yvr.ca under Latest Info.
