“After more than four months of savage lockdown, they have sent a very strong message: we will stand up to the end. The only satisfactory outcome to this conflict will be a negotiated agreement,” Rolls-Royce Canada Workers Union President Frédéric Labelle said in a statement.

“Inflation is at record levels, labor shortages are widespread as the aeronautics sector recovers from difficult years. In this context, it is indecent that Rolls-Royce is today seeking to cut shamelessly in the working conditions of the employees who have made its reputation for excellence", for his part indicated the vice-president of the Federation. of manufacturing industry (FIM-CSN), Serge Berthiaume.

Without a collective agreement since March 2020, the approximately 530 workers specializing in the maintenance of Rolls-Royce Canada's aircraft engines are demanding a five-year employment contract. In particular, they want to eliminate the “orphan” clauses of the pension plan and group insurance, improve wages and working hours and improve holidays.

The workers went on strike on March 15 when the employer decided to lock them out.
