Commissionaires at Halifax Harbour Bridges and Halifax Regional Police reach tentative agreement with Commissionaires Nova Scotia

Halifax, NS – Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) Local 80375 which represents over 80 Commissionaires who work at Halifax Harbour Bridges and Halifax Regional Police has reached a tentative agreement with Commissionaires Nova Scotia, narrowly missing a strike/lockout deadline of May 31, 2019.

Since talks broke down, workers have been appealing to the public to join them in asking their employer to prove it knows the value of a veteran.  Support for these commissionaires has been overwhelming as they have campaigned for better wages and access to a benefits package that their non-unionized peers already enjoy.      

Union members will have an opportunity to decide whether they accept the tentative deal at an upcoming ratification vote. No details will be released until an agreement has been ratified.
