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.
The bargaining team would like to thank all the members for their support, solidarity, and mobilization during this round of bargaining. The actions members took in the workplace were invaluable and sent a strong message to Swissport.
Approximately 80 members of PSAC/UCTE Local 20221 work at Swissport Canada in Richmond BC, refueling aircraft and providing associated services at YVR.
