It is a sorry start to the year for Bombardier, who has announced that 10% of its workforce will lose their jobs in a bid to save the ailing manufacturer.
It is thought that 7,000 jobs will go as Bombardier continue to try to turn itself around. Last year the launch of the Learjet 85 was suspended indefinitely, as orders tailed off across the industry. Approximately 500 jobs will be cut in the company’s business aviation sector, with almost half of those from the Learjet facility in Wichita.
Bombardier is a company that holds sustainability close to the heart of its business ideal, and continues to be dedicated to carrying that model throughout its operations.
