700 Bombardier workers on strike
Talks between CAW and Bombardier ongoing at Thunder Bay plant
THUNDER BAY, Ont.—The Canadian Auto Workers and Bombardier are in the midst of negotiations after approximately 700 workers went on strike yesterday at 4 p.m.
The Thunder Bay, Ont. plant manufactures bi-level rail cars, street cars and subway cars.
The CAW says negotiations fell apart over demands for cuts to the pension plan, particularly for new workers.
Talks have been ongoing since April this year. The approximately 700 workers represented by CAW Local 1075 have been without a new contract since their last agreement expired on May 31.
