Bombardier workers voted to reject a tentative agreement on July 2, extending a strike at the planemaker’s facilities in Toronto and Waterloo, Ont.

The strike affects 1,359 aircraft assembly workers represented by Unifor at Pearson International Airport and a pre-flight operations facility at Waterloo Regional Airport.

Bombardier said in a statement to CBC News that it is, “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 company said.

The strike began June 23, and Unifor reached a tentative agreement June 27 after what the union said was a “lengthy and very challenging negotiation.”

Workers rejected the with 76 percent of participating members voting against it, Unifor said. More than 800 members participated in the ratification vote, which was split 615 to 193.

  1. The union and the workers of locals 112 and 673 will collectively make their decision based on needs and wants. The unions are knowledgeable and will commit to getting what their members want, no one wants a strike as their is no real winners. Bombardier is a great company to work for I spent 44 years there and loved every moment, well almost every moment
