HALIFAX - A labour dispute at the Halifax airport ended Saturday when locked-out Servisair workers voted 65 per cent in favour of a revised offer from the company.
The contract includes a one-year wage freeze.
About 80 employees, members of the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, were locked out on April 1 after they rejected the multinational company's demand for a two-year wage freeze.
Servisair provides ground services for several airlines at Halifax Stanfield International Airport, including Air Transat, Sunwing, Purolator and WestJet.
The one-year deal calls for about 15 per cent of the workers to get a lump-sum payment next April equal to three per cent of their regular pay over the preceding year.
A union spokesman says the company also agreed to several changes in contract language that will improve working conditions.
