Saint John Airport

Saint John Airport members reach tentative agreement

August 2011

25 UCTE/PSAC workers at Saint John Airport in Saint John, NB, have been without a contract since December 31, 2008. Negotiations with the employer came to a standstill when the employer decided to walk away from the table claiming they had nothing left to offer.

After two days of legal strike action, both parties were able to reach a tentative agreement late Wednesday afternoon. UCTE offers its congratulations to the members at Saint John Airport for an effective strike action that a brought a quick resolution to almost three years without a collective agreement.
