ST. JOHN’S, NL - After 5 days of negotiations and a 5-day recess, the St. John’s Airport Authority is refusing to negotiate with striking workers to end a six-month strike.

It is now obvious to the PSAC that this employer is not prepared to negotiate an end to this labour dispute, but wants to continue trying to impose its demands on workers.
