TTC Dilemma Results In Job Losses

Posted on Thursday, July 30, 2015 13:54 PM

Bombardier is confirming that there have been job losses at the local plant as the result of the delays in the Toronto Transit Commission streetcar contract.  

Spokesperson Marc-Andre Lefebvre wouldn't say how many people have been let go, but says it was throughout the entire organization from top to bottom.    Lefebvre says the workers who've been replaced didn't have the quality of the project at heart.  

Other changes which have been made include hiring a consultant, who Lefebvre calls a world leading third party expert,  to support the decision to ramp up production in September and investing more money to improve the quality of the tooling equipment they use.
