Employee lockout ends at Stanfield Airport

About 80 workers who service airplanes at Halifax Stanfield International Airport are no longer locked out.

The members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, which represents Servisair’s unionized employees, voted Saturday in favour of a new offer from the company.

Media reports indicate the members voted 65 per cent in favour for the offer, which includes a one-year wage freeze.

The workers were locked out on April 1 after rejecting a two-year wage freeze offer. The two sides had been without a contract since last June, with negotiations on-going since November.

These employees work on the ramps and offer passenger service for airlines.
