Saving Bombardier jobs needs more than fluffy words, union tells May
Government under fire as workers from Belfast aircraft plant prepare to hold protest at Houses of Parliament
The government has been accused of failing to go beyond “fluffy words” in its attempts to help more than 4,000 staff of aircraft maker Bombardier who face losing their jobs in an international trade dispute.
Workers from Bombardier’s Belfast plant will on Wednesday unfurl a banner outside the Houses of Parliament in London demanding that Theresa May and her ministers do more to safeguard their jobs.
The US commerce department has upheld Boeing’s claim that Bombardier was able to offer its C-Series planes to US airline Delta for a vastly reduced price because of illegal states subsidies from Canada and the UK, violating global trade rules.
