Members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) held a rally today in support of striking workers at the St. John’s International Airport.
The workers have been on strike since Sept. 11.
About 85 people, members of the Union of Canadian Transportation Employees, Local 90916, represented by PSAC, are on the picket line.
The workers provide operational and maintenance services, including runway clearing, building upkeep and emergency services.
They're employed by the St. John's International Airport Authority.
About 120 striking airport workers and supporters rallied today, with the strike now in its third months.
Local labour leaders called for St. John's airport management to return to the negotiating table. Representatives from sympathetic local unions also presented donations to the airport workers' strike fund.
The striking workers are demanding wage parity with works at Halifax International Airport. Workers have been without a collective agreement since 2009 and haven't had a wage increase in four years.
