A tentative contract agreement has been reached for nearly 3,000 private-sector security screeners at Mississauga’s Pearson Airport.

The deal was reportedly reached late Friday (June 21) and includes a 24 per cent wage increase over the next three years.

These security screeners are responsible for screening passengers and their belongings at Canada’s busiest airport.

If the strike had proceeded as planned, it would have happened at a critical travel time, with approximately 130,000 passengers reportedly passing through the airport this past Saturday.

According to a spokesperson, union members are expected to vote on ratifying the deal within the next week.
