Unite will seek urgent discussions with employers with the aim of making progress

December 10th: Responding to the news that his union’s membership in Bombardier has voted to reject a management proposal to cut terms and conditions, Unite Regional Coordinating Officer, Davy Thompson said:

“Unite negotiators were asked to ballot on a pay offer from management which would seek cuts to workers’ terms and conditions and leave them dependent on a performance-related bonus for an improvement in their incomes.

“The union did not try to influence its members in regard to the offer but our representatives in the workforce presented it to them on the grounds outlined by management.

“While we recognise that Bombardier faces exceptional cash-flow pressures, the membership of Unite has exercised their democratic right in relation to this offer. We will now seek to engage with management in order to progress this matter further”, Mr Thompson concluded.
