Bombardier Learjet and the striking Machinists Union will return to the bargaining table for a new round of contract talks, under the supervision of a federal mediator. The union has been on strike since its members rejected a contract offer on Oct. 6.
The union members voted to reject the five-year contract proposal over increases in health care contributions and the length of the contract.
A statement from Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service director George Cohen said the company and Machinists Local 639 have agreed to return to negotiations for a collective bargaining agreement under the supervision of federal mediators.
The statement said the FCMS and the two sides will not make any public comment until further notice because of the sensitivity of the negotiations.
