HALIFAX, NS– Commissionaires at Halifax’s Stanfield International Airport voted 90% in support of a strike on Thursday, January 19, after the employer made a final offer and walked away from the table. The 175 members of Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) local 85100, employed by Commissionaires Nova Scotia (CNS) to provide security, ground transportation and parking services at the airport, could be on strike by mid-March.

A three-way initiative supported by the Province, the City of Charlottetown, and unions representing federal employees on the Island is being launched to preserve federal jobs.

"Maintaining a strong federal presence on the Island is absolutely vital," says Premier Robert Ghiz. "And I am very pleased to see so many groups and individuals working together to make a strong case to Ottawa."

The initiative is in response to widespread reports that the Government of Canada’s efforts to balance the books will result in lay-offs or the elimination of federal positions.
