Latest news for airport workers
Wearing the appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is the best way to help protect you from hazards that may harm you and that you’re protecting yourself. We want to help make sure you’re safe every day. We’ve worked with Mark’s to offer all airport employees a 10% off coupon for regularly priced merchandise to ensure you have the right PPE to work safely.
The Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) directive comes into effect on December 1. It states that safety vests and CSA approved footwear are required to be worn at all times when working airside. Airside includes all baggage laterals, make-up, and baggage road areas; all terminal, hangar, cargo, maintenance, deicing, and general aviation aprons; all vehicle corridors, including taxiways, runways, and adjacent areas.
10% off all regularly priced products at any of Mark's 380+ retail stores across Canada. Year-round, expires June 2024. The offers cannot be used on items already discounted.
From September 17, 2023 to September 23, 2023, GTAA employees can enjoy 25% off regular priced merchandise at any Mark's store across Canada. Excludes previous purchases and the purchase of gift cards.
