Conciliation proceedings between GlobeGround Fuel Services / Servisair Inc. and the Public Service Alliance of Canada resumed June 21 and 22, 2010. Unfortunately, after a long delay of three (3) months, this session did not result in a tentative agreement. Therefore, the parties will be in a legal strike / lockout position as of July 16, 2010.

As with the first conciliation proceedings, these two (2) days were frustratingly slow. The employer appeared ill prepared and had very few responses for your bargaining team. Agreement was reached on the following issues only:

  • Strikes and Lockouts
  • Maternity Leave
  • Education Leave
  • Travel Time
  • Staffing Procedure

Other issues dealt with include Management Rights, Designated Paid Holidays, Family Related Leave, Layoff and Recall, Employee Status, Call-back, Shift Premiums, Vacation Leave and Benefits.

The next session is scheduled for July 12 to 15, 2010. An announcement regarding a strike vote will be made shortly.

These negotiations will result in a first collective agreement for this unit. Some of the duties performed by these members include the supervision of approximately 80 fuelers and fueling related workers at the Vancouver International Airport as well as administrative duties related to inventory, accounts payable etc.
