After a marathon weekend bargaining session and the threat of a lock-out from the employer, the tentative agreement reached between Servisair Inc. and the PSACs bargaining team on April 17, 2010, was ratified by the membership yesterday. Some highlights of the three year agreement include:

  • 100% Employer paid premiums for the Group Insurance Plan (from 50%)
  • introduction of 80% major dental plan to provide coverage for crowns, bridges etc and expansion of the orthodontic plan to cover employees and spouses
  • increase in vision care allowance and laser eye corrective surgery added to coverage
  • increase in life insurance, accidental death & dismemberment insurance, and dependent’s life insurance
  • 2% rate of pay increase, effective 2011
  • increase in paid sick leave days from 2 to 7 over 3 years
  • increases in shift premiums, mechanics, and tool allowance
  • improved language regarding discrimination, harassment, and the grievance procedure
  • no rollbacks

This new PSAC unit of seventy-three  members provides fueling and fueling related services at the Vancouver International Airport, and are members of YVR Local 20221. The new collective agreement will expire October 31, 2012.
