The City of Timmins is disappointed that mediation with the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) was unsuccessful and that the union intends to take its members out on strike.

PSAC has made claims about the cost of work clothing and premium pay eroding the wage offer of the City. Even after addressing those items in mediation, the PSAC has now decided to ask for a 12.8% wage increase.

This salary request is far beyond any settlements the City has had with its other unions and is well in excess of any reasonable cost of living increases.

Most importantly for travellers, the City of Timmins has plans in place and does not anticipate any significant disruptions to operations. Travellers should anticipate some delays when a picket line is formed, and are encouraged to factor that into their plans.

On Friday, March 1 after the close of the workday, the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) faxed the City notice of its intention to lead its members at the Victor M. Power Airport off the job on strike effective Monday, March 4 at 6 p.m.

​Mediation is scheduled for today between the City and the union. The City’s last offer to the union was delivered on February 6. The union flatly refused that offer and has not provided a counter offer since that time. It is hoped that this meeting will help move all parties towards agreement.

Travellers may expect some delays in the event of the establishment of a picket line, and should factor that into their preparation for flights. The City of Timmins will continue to provide safe and reliable airport operations in the event of a labour disruption.
