Closed petition The government must act to defend Jobs & Skills at Bombardier, Northern Ireland

The UK is the second biggest Boeing client globally. We call on the government to follow-through on their words and use their leverage to defend UK jobs from US protectionism; to compel Boeing to withdraw their meritless case and lift the threat hanging over thousands of Northern Ireland workers.

More details

More than 4,000 aerospace workers are employed by Bombardier in Northern Ireland; sustaining a further 20,000 in the local economy.
These jobs are threatened by the 300% import tariffs on Bombardiers C Series proposed by President Trump's administration on behalf of Boeing.
There is no basis for these punitive tariffs, as Boeing does not even produce an aircraft in the same class; they are intended to close the US market, preventing the superior C Series aircraft from getting a foothold.
