The Swissport (Vancouver) Bargaining Committee met with the Company for the first time on July 14th, 2017, this one-day meeting consisted of both parties exchanging non-monetary proposals. We met again on October 18-20 and October 24 -25 to work through the proposals presented from both sides.

We have made some good progress on the non-monetary proposals and continue to work through on a few outstanding issues.

We presented the monetary proposals to the Company this week, and they are taking some time to review the financial costs of these proposals.  The monetary negotiations are vital for our members as our membership has not had significant wage increases in several years. 

We will be meeting with the Company in Vancouver on November 21-23 & 30, and December 1st to evaluate the Company’s response to the monetary proposals. 

Your Bargaining Committee is committed to keeping you informed throughout the negotiations.

We will provide updates via Unifor 2002 bulletins. These bulletins will be available on the Unifor 2002 website and via e-news. Please ensure you have subscribed to Unifor 2002 e-news at 

In Solidarity,

Your Bargaining Committee members:
