VICTORIA, July 6, 2012 /CNW/ - Negotiations between the Public Service Alliance of Canada, bargaining
agent for workers at Victoria Airport, and the Airport Authority have
"The employer has made it clear in no uncertain terms that they want to
create a second class employee at the workplace", says Bob Jackson,
PSAC Regional Executive Vice-President for BC. "We have been forced to
seek the assistance of a Federal Conciliation Officer in an attempt to
achieve a negotiated settlement."
"We have met with the employer since April and we are still waiting for
their side to clearly explain some of their bargaining proposals", says
Dave Clark, Regional Vice-President for the Union of Canadian
Transportation Employees, a Component of the PSAC.
There are more than 27 PSAC members employed by the Victoria Airport
Authority. These members provide key services such as emergency
response; customer care, runway maintenance; airfield & approach
lighting; computer systems; passenger loading bridges and maintenance
of airport equipment and administrative services.
