Machinists Union Strikes Bomardier [Video]

It’s official. At 12:01 am this morning, the International Association of Machinists took its members out on strike against Learjet-manufacturer Bombardier.

One minute after midnight on Monday, for the second time in the plant’s history, Bombardier Learjet union members will take their place on the picket line outside the gates.

“We are not fighting for today. We are fighting for our future,ā€ union member Darryl Higgins said.

First-time striker Darryl Higgins says the decision wasn’t easy but one he and his fellow union members felt they had to make.

“Scared to death – hope it won’t take long. Iā€™m out for how ever long it takes to get our fair shake,ā€ Higgins said.
