Union officials didn’t have many answers concerning the future of Thunder Bay’s Bombardier plant on Tuesday after it was announced the company would be stopping production on all its aircraft and rail production because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Unifor Local 1075 president Dominic Pasqualino said the news was new and he wasn’t sure of any timelines on when production would end.
