Vancouver Airport Authority, union avert strike

Canadian airport operator the Vancouver Airport Authority and airport workers´ union the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) said they have reached a tentative deal that is fair and equitable for both parties.

The PSAC Local 20221 represents employees working at Vancouver International Airport that provide emergency services, finance and administrative services.

According to the union, PSAC will need to present the tentative agreement to their membership and employees will need to vote on the adoption of the agreement as presented. The period of union member review and voting will have no impact on airport operations.

Vancouver International Airport said it will continue to operate as normal. Details of the settlement will become available after the ratification vote.

The Airport Authority is a community-based, not-for-profit organisation that manages Vancouver International Airport. Canada´s second busiest airport, YVR served 17.6m passengers in 2012, facilitated 261,000 takeoffs and landings and handled 227,200 tons of cargo.
