Aircraft fuellers at Vancouver International Airport have voted in favour of taking strike action against Swissport Canada. Swissport manages the refuelling of almost all passenger and cargo aircraft at YVR.
There are approximately 50 members of PSAC-UCTE Local 20221 working at Swissport Canada, refueling aircraft and providing associated services at YVR. They have been without a contract since October 2021.
Public Service Alliance of Canada regional executive VP Jamey Mills is warning that work disruptions at YVR may be on the horizon.
