GATINEAU, QC, July 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Today, the Honourable Lisa Raitt, Canada's Labour Minister, commended the St. John's International Airport Authority and the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) on reaching a tentative agreement that would end a nearly 10-month strike.
"I am pleased that the St. John's International Airport Authority and PSAC have worked with the Federal mediators to achieve a tentative agreement," said Minister Raitt. "I look forward to the official ratification of this collective agreement, which would put an end to this dispute."
