End of Learjet strike a win for community

Congratulations to the leaders on both sides of the negotiating table at the Machinists union and Bombardier Learjet, whose efforts led to Saturday’s vote to approve the contract offer and Monday’s end of the five-week strike. The best feature of the new five-year contract is that it gets Learjet’s skilled workers back to the business of manufacturing outstanding aircraft that will be needed as the economy rebounds.
