New deal agreed by BPSU
Public servants and the Bermuda Civil Aviation Authority have signed a three-year collective bargaining agreement.
The BPSU said the backdated agreement was signed on February 27 and was effective from April 1 last year. It will expire at the end of March 2020.
The BCAA became a government quango by act of Parliament in 2016 and replaced the Department of Civil Aviation.
BCAA staff voted to become a new bargaining unit of the BPSU after it was hived off.
Both parties entered into negotiations with a recognition that the agreement needed to balance the remit of the quango with the legislative requirement that the terms and conditions of employment were no less favourable than those applied before the Act came into force.
The BPSU said: “The parties are pleased that the final agreement successfully addressed the key issues facing employees and ensured the creation of a working environment where officers can focus on providing exceptional service that meets stringent international standards.”
