PSAC is happy to announce that a new collective agreement has been ratified by members of the Swissport Canada fuel services bargaining unit at Vancouver International Airport.
The agreement, which was achieved with the assistance of a federal conciliation officer, expires October 2021 and includes a fair wage increase and improvements to shift premiums. The employer has also committed to addressing members’ concerns around part-time workers, with binding arbitration to take place should the union and the company not reach an agreement.
Accessing feminine hygiene products is challenging for low income and homeless women. Food, shelter, and clothing take precedence, leaving women with few options to deal with their periods with dignity. As a result, women often have to resort to stealing feminine hygiene products, or utilizing socks or toilet paper in lieu of sanitary pads or tampons, which leaves them more susceptible to infection.
PSAC is scheduling meetings for members in the PA, TC, SV and EB groups across BC in May and June. This is your opportunity to meet with and speak to members of the Treasury Board bargaining team, hear an update on the status of negotiations, and ask questions.
