YVR fully operational, negotiations continue
August 28, 2013
Negotiations between Vancouver Airport Authority and the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) Local 20221 are underway today and are scheduled for tomorrow, August 29, 2013. The Airport Authority remains committed to reaching a negotiated settlement that is fair for both parties.
Airport operations are not affected by the PSAC’s notice to strike at Vancouver International Airport commencing at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 30, 2013.
Vancouver International Airport will remain open and fully operational in the event of a strike. A Maintenance of Activities Agreement, finalized August 23, between Vancouver Airport Authority and the PSAC established essential roles where employees are required to work alongside management to keep the airport operating in a safe and efficient manner.
All updates about airport operations will be posted on www.yvr.ca. As usual, we encourage travellers to check our website or with their airlines for flight status information.
