Bombardier Inc reached an agreement with Toronto members of Canada’s largest private-sector union, the business-jet maker and the union said on Friday.

The parties have tentatively renewed the collective bargaining agreements, the statement said.

Earlier this week, union Unifor’s local members had launched a strike demanding a combined 2,200 workers at the same Toronto manufacturing site for Bombardier’s Global large-cabin business jets and De Havilland’s Dash 8-400 turboprop aircraft.

Unifor has scheduled a virtual ratification meeting with Bombardier on Saturday.

The union also said negotiations with De Havilland were ongoing.
