Media Room

Come gather today to send a message to the Winnipeg Airport Authority (WAA) and support PSAC/UCTE workers.

Following the failure to negotiate in good faith with workers, the employer is now negotiating in the media, rather than at the bargaining table. 

A strike began at the Winnipeg Airport Monday morning (July 24, 2017) at 3:00am. After seven days of negotiations with the assistance of a federally-appointed mediator aimed at resolving all outstanding issues in bargaining between the Winnipeg Airport and its General Bargaining Unit employees, members of UCTE Local 50600 of the PSAC, the employer left the talks at 6:00pm Sunday after tabling an offer which failed to address almost all of those issues.

A strike could occur at the Winnipeg Airport as early as Monday, if the union is unable to reach a tentative agreement with the employer. The Public Service Alliance of Canada served the required 72-hour notice late last night.

Unionized workers employed by the Winnipeg Airports Authority (WAA) sent a clear message to their employer last night, voting strongly in favour of taking strike action later this week should mediation talks break down. Several meetings were held Monday evening to allow union members to vote to take strike action as early as 12:01 a.m., Saturday, July 22, if an agreement can’t be reached. That deadline can be extended, as needed, if talks remain productive.
