De Havilland workers rally to keep jobs in Ontario

De Havilland workers are currently on strike to stop the corporate owners from moving Dash 8 aircraft production, which would put 700 jobs at the Toronto facility at risk."Our union cannot and will not stand idly by as the future of hundreds of highly-skilled workers' jobs are in jeopardy, threatening the aviation sector's post-COVID economic recovery," said Unifor National President Jerry Dias. "Workers deserve better than to be kicked to the curb during a once-in-a-century pandemic by a company whose owner happens to be the wealthiest woman in the country."The labor dispute at De Havilland is at the center of the crisis in Canada's aerospace sector. Workers have been on strike since July 27, 2021, over the future location of the De Havilland Dash 8 programs. Workers at De Havilland have built the iconic Dash 8 for generations. The absence of a settlement leaves 700 advanced manufacturing jobs at risk with the current Downsview plant scheduled to close at the end of 2021.
