Bombardier Strike Over – Workers Ratify Agreement

Unifor workers in Dryden vote overwhelmingly to accept deal

BombardierTHUNDER BAY – Bombardier workers have voted with an 85% support level to accept the contract agreement worked out between Bombardier and Unifor.

The vote ends an eight week long strike that was starting to look like it was headed into a longer labour dispute.

Workers started voting this morning after being briefed on the contract.

The ratification vote should mean workers will head back to work as early as next week.

Full details of the agreement are pending, but with the large margin of acceptance it appears workers were satisfied with the agreement.

Work at the Thunder Bay Plant on new street cars for the Toronto Transit Commission have been delayed during the strike.
