Contract talks hit snag


Talks between Bombardier Transportation and the union representing 800 workers at the company’s Thunder Bay light-rail plant broke off “abruptly” Saturday afternoon, as Monday’s strike deadline loomed.

Unifor has said workers will hit the picket line if there is no agreement reached by Monday at 2 p.m.
