Meeting with ADM Cancelled: Employer’s Refusal to Negotiate Regrettable, Says PSAC

Montreal, December 7, 2018 – While the 93 employees affected by Aéroports de Montréal’s threat to contract out their jobs are waiting to hear back from their employer, ADM’s senior management has cancelled today’s scheduled meeting, the union announced.

Yvon Barrière, Regional Executive Vice-President of PSAC-Quebec, was to meet with Philippe Rainville, Aéroports de Montréal’s President and CEO, at 10:45 this morning in his office. ADM decided to cancel the meeting, even though the union was pressing for one.

“It’s really too bad,” said Yvon Barrière. “Discussions with ADM’s lawyers who answer all our questions in letters that start out ‘Without Prejudice’ aren’t going to solve our problem. I want to know what their real intentions are: I know we can help them to find a solution that works for all parties. We’re open to frank and honest discussion.”
