In 2012, our Toronto Airport Catering center employees chose to join a union

We were referred to and retained Steve to negotiate our first collective agreement. As an employer, we also operate a unionized catering center in Vancouver. Steve led us in negotiations and was able to achieve a recommended first agreement that was far better than we expected. Since that time, Steve has acted as our chief spokesperson in collective bargaining in both our Toronto and Vancouver locations.

He has always represented our best interests and has negotiated recommended agreements that have been achieved within the mandate provided. He has provided valuable counsel in order to assist CLS in achieving labour outcomes that positively positioned our business within a highly competitive environment. Steve has a deep understanding of the bargaining process and understands the complexities of negotiations.

He does his homework, takes a solution-based approach to solve issues and does not back away from difficult issues or conversations. Steve has also provided valuable advice and counsel on a number of labour and employment issues.
