O’Neill welcomes victory for workers at Bombardier

26 January, 2018 - by Michelle O'Neill

Speaking in response to today’s decision by the US International Trade Commission (ITC)

to overturn a decision to impose punitive trade tariffs on the C-Series aircraft orders, Michelle O’Neill MLA says,

“I welcome the decision to overturn trade tariffs being imposed on the C-Series aircraft. It represents a welcome victory for Bombardier, the Belfast workforce and their representatives at Unite the Union. 

“I have worked with the company and Union representatives over the past year to resist the economic threat posed to jobs at the Bombardier Belfast operation, and by extension to our local economy.

“I hope that the matter is now closed and that the company can secure the future of the C-Series, and by extension the workforce in their new partnership with Airbus.”
