CATSA-Regulated airports • Local Lodge 16 and G4S

Dear Sisters and Brothers:

Direct bargaining sessions were held with G4S between September 7 – 16, 2011.  We completed our exchange of agendas and began exchanging proposals.  Your Committee is scheduled to meet in-house on September 17 & 18, 2011 to continue working on language proposals.

Please remember at times like this, certain people may attempt to take advantage and spread rumors in the workplace to harm the process or serve a personal agenda, creating division amongst the membership and undermining our success at the bargaining table.

The IAM is the only Union meeting with G4S and we are working hard on your behalf to negotiate a new collective agreement.  If you have any questions or concerns, please phone us at (604) 303-0461 or email us at

We will resume direct bargaining with G4S on Monday, September 19, 2011 and will continue to communicate throughout the process.  Your continued support and patience is appreciated.

Please remember one thing:  Together, standing strong as one Union and speaking with one loud voice, we can improve our standard of living.

In Solidarity,

Tania Canniff
