IMP Aerospace issues 72-hour strike notice

By Caitlin Snow Nov 8, 2023 | 11:56 AM

A 72-hour strike notice from IMP Aerospace.

The members work as airframe mechanics, avionics technicians, aircraft painters, cable assemblers, stores controllers, electronic techs, and maintenance workers.

“Taking more than 320 workers out on strike and impacting those families is never an easy decision. We felt a responsibility as a bargaining committee to show members what the company was willing to offer and let them decide if it was enough to avoid a strike,” said Kelly LeBlanc, President of Local 2215. “Members were loud and clear that the offer simply didn’t address the affordability crisis we all find ourselves in right now.”

Unifor says other issues include the structure of paid time off and how 10 paid sick days for federally-regulated workers will impact the overall agreement.

Workers in Hammonds Plains and Enfield, threaten to walk off the job by Friday, November 10 at 1pm.
