VANCOUVER, April 17 /CNW/ - Negotiations between the union for Vancouver International Airport workers - who refuel Air Canada, WestJet and all international airlines - and their employer Servisair will continue Saturday afternoon.
The Public Service Alliance of Canada says bargaining took place through Friday night and early Saturday morning with the assistance of a federal conciliator and will resume at 2 p.m. today.
"We remain hopeful that negotiations will lead to a new contract without the employer locking out fuel workers," said Kay Sinclair, PSAC BC Regional Executive Vice President.
Key issues are benefits, retirement benefits and other monetary and contract conditions.
Employer Servisair is a Paris-based company that provides fuel to Air Canada, WestJet and most other airlines at Vancouver International Airport as well as at more than 128 locations worldwide.
