May 14, 2008 | General
Â· On Monday, July 31, 2000, strike action was initiated by PSAC, the bargaining agent for 115 Edmonton Airports employees, at Edmonton International Airport. These employees are employed in a variety of areas including accounting, field and general maintenance, environmental services, information booth, marketing, planning and engineering and real estate services.
Â· PSAC communicates that job security and wages are the main issues:
Â· Edmonton Airports provides employment security in the event of contracting out through provisions in the previous contract. Edmonton Airports is prepared to maintain those employment security provisions.
Â· The average wage of a unionized employee is $21 an hour. In addition, Edmonton Airports is offering a 14.25% wage increase over 5 years.
