New collective agreement to be presented for ratification
Unifor Local 1075 and Bombardier Transportation reached a tentative deal on a new collective agreement.
The two parties reached an agreement — to be presented for ratification on Sept. 12 — after more than eight weeks on strike. The announcement came after eight days of negotiations over two weeks.
The 900 members of Unifor Local 1075 went on strike on July 14.
Bombardier issued a statement saying the company “hopes to see our valued employees return to work as quickly as possible.”
Unifor employees at Bombardier build the new subway and streetcars for the Toronto Transit Commission, as well as cars for the GO Train commuter train service.
Details of the new collective agreement will be presented to the membership for ratification, with a full discussion and debate to be held at that time.
