A new collective agreement was ratified by members of the Swissport Canada fuel services bargaining unit on July 3 at Vancouver International Airport, according to the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC).

The agreement — which was achieved with the assistance of a federal conciliation officer —  expires in October 2021 and includes a fair wage increase and improvements to shift premiums, said the union.

The employer also committed to addressing members’ concerns around part-time workers, with binding arbitration to take place should the union and the company not reach an agreement, said PSAC.
