"We're proud that this new seven-year agreement will bring labour peace to Mont- realers until the end of 2024," says Luc Bisson, president of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), Local 301. The parties had been in talks for the last few weeks and they came to a tentative agreement overnight on Dec. 18, says the union. The previous collective agreement covering the work- ing conditions of the 6,000 blue-collar workers with the City of Montreal expired in December 2017, says CUPE. NAV CANADA pay settlement reached OTTAWA — The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and NAV CANADA reached a pay equity settle- ment on Dec. 18 involving current and former members at the agency. The Canadian Human Rights Commission-approved settlement is applicable to em- ployees who occupied a pos- ition in various classifications at any time between Nov. 1, 1996 and June 30, 2011, says PSAC. The union's complaint was filed in 2002 and was related to the pay equity settlement reached with Treasury Board in 1999. Transport Canada workers in some classifica- tions who transferred to the newly created NAV CANADA in 1996 were no longer eli- gible for the Treasury Board pay equity adjustments even though their classifications and pay remained at pre-pay equity levels upon their trans- fer, says the union. The human rights complaint alleged that NAV CANADA had not met its obligations under the Canadian Human Rights Act to ensure equal pay for work of equal value for fe- male predominant positions. "It's been a long struggle but our members working in female-dominated positions at NAV CANADA will finally receive the compensation they deserved," says Chris Aylward, PSAC national president. First contract signed for SSP workers MONTREAL — While most of the 240 new unionized workers at Dorval Airport's bars and restaurants have been laid off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, their jobs will re- main intact and protected for 24 months and the employees will continue to receive group insurance coverage during this period, says the United Steel- workers (USW). On Dec. 17, 99.3 per cent of the new union members em- ployed by SSP Quebec Food Service in about 15 bars and restaurants at Dorval Airport ratified their first work con- tract since unionizing in De- cember 2019, says the union. "A joint committee of union and employer representatives is being set up to respond to the unique context of the COVID-19 pandemic, to adapt to changing health standards and to ensure that workers are properly protected," says Jean- René Dumas, USW, Local 9400 recording secretary. Through conciliation, the contract includes measures that specifically address un- certainties related to the pan- demic, as well as a number of advances in working condi- tions, says the union. Tips and gratuities will be included in the calculation of benefits such as statutory holi- days, vacation time, sick days and parental leaves. A fourth week of vacation is allocated after seven years of seniority and all members will be en- titled to a statutory holiday and an additional sick day, says USW. The amount allocated for work uniforms has been in- creased and an allowance is now provided for the purchase of shoes, says the union.
