Vancouver: The Vancouver Airport Authority says it has no role to play in union negotiations with the company that operates food service businesses at the airport.
Unite Here Local 40 is currently in bargaining with S-S-P Canada, which runs food outlets at the airport, and the union says the airport authority is a living wage employer, though more than a thousand food service contractors earn just above minimum wage.
The union says it’s fighting wage discrimination faced by airport food service workers, calling for all workers at the airport to be paid a 25-dollar-an-hour living wage.
The airport authority says it is an advocate for a living wage, and S-S-P just leases space at Y-V-R to run its business, and the
negotiations are strictly between the company and the union.
