Act Now! – St. John’s Port Authority workers need your help

Bargaining has reached an impasse between Public Service Alliance of Canada members and the St. John’s Port Authority. Act now by sending a letter to stakeholders with the St. John’s Port Authority. This includes: Minister of Labour Seamus O’Regan, Minister of Transport of Canada Omar Alghabra, Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador Andrew Furey, NFLD Progressive Conservative Leader David Brazil, Interim Leader of the NFLD NDP Jim Dinn, Newfoundland and Labrador Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Elvis Loveless, St. John’s City Mayor Danny Breen, St. John’s Deputy Mayor Sheilagh O’Leary, St. John’s City councillors, and directors on the St. John’s Port Authority Board.

You can help these members by showing your support in their collective bargaining. Right now, the St. John’s Port Authority is refusing to negotiate fair language around the standby clause in the collective agreement. This standby work takes up huge chunks of a worker’s life without any predictability of work time.

We are asking that these stakeholders, who have a say on the board of the St. John’s Port Authority, reach out to the CEO Sean Hanrahan to ask him to come to the table and negotiate fairly with these workers.

As a constituent and a member of the broader public who understands the importance of the work that these members do, you can help us by sending a letter to key stakeholders. Make sure that they get the message – we need to get back to the table, negotiate in good faith and agree to a tentative agreement that respects the important and integral work of these PSAC members.
