Vancouver- Approximately 70 workers who fuel jet aircraft at Vancouver Airport have a new collective agreement.

Members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) / Union of Canadian Transportation Employees (UCTE) Local 20221 working at GlobeGround Fuel Services voted Tuesday to ratify a tentative agreement reached last week.

The three-year contract, which expires in November 2015, provides wage and shift premium increases as well as improvements to the language around hours of work, overtime, seniority, and staffing.

A reminder regarding Regulation 5 of the PSAC Constitution, which defines the rights and responsibilities of  members who are temporarily away on leave without pay. In order to remain a member in good standing members must advise the PSAC Natinonal President. A template letter is available for download below.

REGULATION DEFINING THE RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF NON DUES-PAYING MEMBERS UNDER SECTION 4, SUB-SECTION (2)(f) AND (g) OF THE
PSAC CONSTITUTION

A. Responsibilities:

PSAC/UCTE members at Vancouver airport have reached a tentative agreement with their employer, Globe Ground. The local has posted ratification meeting times.

Last year, the PSAC along with other unions at the National Joint Council negotiated some improvements to the Public Service Health Care Plan (PSHCP). An agreement was reached between the NJC unions, Treasury Board and other employer representatives to help bring the PSHCP in line with other similar health care plans. The employer has now come back to the table and is asking for two major concessions in return for implementing the deal that they had already agreed to.

As bargaining between PSAC/UCTE Local 20221 (members working directly for YVR) and the Airport Authority ramps up, the bargaining team has prepared a series of issue papers designed to inform members around key issues at the table. Here's  Issue Paper #5 - Contracting Out
