Belgium - Industrial action at Bombardier - February 28, 2017

The trade unions at Bombardier Bruges have created a joint union front that negotiates with the company and the local and regional authorities in an attempt to diminish as much as possible the consequences of a planned relocation and transfer of production. The unions fear job losses of half of the workforce (some 250 job cuts). The Bombardier management has denied the losses and announced an extraordinary works council meeting on 3 March 2017 about the plans. After two days of strikes the trade unions advised the workers to get back to work.
