Bombardier, Unifor picket-line issues may be settled outside of court


THUNDER BAY -- A picket-line injunction might not have to go before the courts again after all.

Unifor, the union representing nearly 900 striking workers at the local Bombardier plant, was set to meet the company in court Thursday. Bombardier had accused the union of breaking court-ordered protocols that were previously in place.

Despite the accusations, the company and union are now trying to settle their differences outside of the courtroom.

A company spokesperson told CKPR News Thursday that more information was expected to be made available Friday.

The solution is very simple. Accept what your employer is offering and go back to work so you can feed your family. If you won't build those cars, someone else will. Are you willing to risk everything due to stuboneness? I was once out on strike for 5 1/2 months at Abitibi. Lots of people never recovered and many families broke up. The employer always has the upper hand.

The company never filed any papers about an injunction for Thursday. You can confirm that with the unions lawyer Derek Noyes. No talks have taken place with the union on this matter either. If Ms. Ash believes a meeting took place,ask her with who and when.

Agreed, it would be wise if the courts ordered negotiations to commence otherwise fines will be handed out to both sides.

Why clutter up hours of valuable court time, when they could spend the same amount of time negotiating an end to the dispute?

Hoping they talk about more than just the picket line protocol!
