Construction of the Southeast Terminal at Edmonton International Airport remains productive and normal. On Monday July 31, some trade contractors respected the PSAC picket line causing a slowdown in construction. Full construction operations resumed Tuesday, and have been maintained. The southeast terminal construction remains on-budget and on-schedule for completion by November 2000.

Pickets remain placed on various access roadways to the International Airport. Please allow at least an extra 15 minutes travel time to the airport. Services at the terminal, including parking, retail and food and beverage, and airline operations remain unaffected. Emergency response services remain unaffected. There have been no flight delays reported as a result of picket activity.

RECAP

· On Monday, July 31, 2000, strike action was initiated by PSAC, the bargaining agent for 115 Edmonton Airports employees, at Edmonton International Airport.

· PSAC communicates that job security is the main issue. 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.
