US authorities to deliver verdict on Bombardier-Boeing trade dispute
Thousands of jobs in Northern Ireland under threat if ruling on unfair state subsidies goes against Bombardier
US authorities are due to deliver their verdict on a trade dispute between rival plane makers Bombardier and Boeing, the repercussions of which could put at risk about 4,000 jobs in Northern Ireland.
American firm Boeing alleged in April that Canada’s Bombardier received unfair state subsidies from Canada and the UK, allowing it to sell its C-Series passenger jets to US airline Delta at below cost.
