Belgium - Bombardier will not close Bruges plant - March 31, 2017

Workers representatives were told during a meeting of the European Works Council of Bombardier that the Bruges plant will not be closed. However, concerns remain about serious job losses. The Bruges branch will have its headquarters in Crespin, in France. Dozens of white collar jobs are at stake. Questions also remain about the production unit after 2018, when Bombardier Bruges will be more dependent on local orders.
