Bombardier aircraft assembly workers still on strike after union rejects latest offer

A strike action taken by 1,359 Bombardier aircraft assembly workers is continuing after the Unifor union members voted to reject a tentative agreement Tuesday.

The strike began at midnight on June 23 after Bombardier and Unifor Local 112 and 673 union members failed to reach an agreement during the bargaining process.

In a statement to CBC News, Bombardier said they are "disappointed that employees in Toronto have chosen not to ratify the company's proposal."

"We will take the necessary time to consider our next steps," the statement continued.

The strike is affecting the aircraft assembly centre at Toronto's Pearson International Airport as well as the pre-flight operations facility at Waterloo Regional International Airport.

The Greater Toronto Airports Authority says the strike is not impacting flights at Toronto's Pearson airport.

Chris Wood, airport director at the Region of Waterloo Airport, said he was unable to comment on issues involving airport tenants.
