TORONTO, June 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Porter FBO Limited has agreed to a
contract with the Canadian Office and Professional Employees (COPE)
union representing 22 customer service and fueling team members. These
workers have been on strike since Jan. 10.
"The strike lasted longer than anyone would have expected, but we look
forward to having back everyone involved now that a deal is done," said
Robert Deluce, president and CEO of Porter FBO Limited.
This negotiated agreement was approved by 85 per cent of voting members
and allows Porter FBO and its team members represented by COPE to focus
on growing business and serving customers. The entire Porter family is
intent on pursuing growth plans to provide service across North America
beginning in 2016, using Bombardier CS100 aircraft. These plans require
certain government approvals and are currently being reviewed.
Porter FBO Limited is a subsidiary of Porter Aviation Holdings Inc.
